The Attempt at a Solution

The formula for finding the mass of an object without a scale or density is mass = volume x density. However, in order to use this formula, you will need to know the object's volume and density, which can be difficult to determine without a scale.
Yes, you can estimate the mass of an object without a scale or density by using known objects that have a similar size and material. For example, if you have a small rock that you know weighs 100 grams, you can use it as a reference to estimate the mass of another small rock of a similar size and material.
Yes, you can find the mass of an irregularly shaped object without a scale or density by using the water displacement method. This involves placing the object in a container of water and measuring the change in water level. The change in volume is equal to the volume of the object, which can then be used in the mass formula.
Some common household items that can be used to estimate the mass of an object without a scale or density include coins, paper clips, and food items such as sugar or flour. You can use these items as references to estimate the mass of other objects with a similar size and material.
No, a ruler cannot be used to measure the mass of an object without a scale or density. A ruler measures length, not mass. However, a ruler can be used to measure the dimensions of an object, which can then be used to calculate the object's volume and ultimately its mass using the appropriate formula.
