volume = mass/specific gravity

using this I can find the mass of the mixture which I can use to find the mass of the substance. according to the above formula

mass = volume * specific gravity

volume is in gallons and S.G is unitless. this gives me a mass in gallons. At this point I am totally lost since I can't find the mass in mass units unless I have the density. I have never worked with specific gravity before so I don't really know too much about it aside from the fact that its a ratio of densities which doesn't really help me much. So how would I find the mass with the information I'm given?
