    hi, this isnt really a homework question but i guessed this would be a good place to start, my question is how to you find the mass of something you cant weigh? im an art student and im doing a project on unknown forces/ hidden values etc and if i wanted to find the weight of say.. a tree? how would i go about doing this?

    thanks in advance

    Well, the easiest way would be to multiply the density of the object's material with its volume.
