Weight to mass

Is there a way to take something you have a weight on and figure out the mass of that object? Looking to calculate the density of some objects. I have the volume and the weight, but I dont knwo how to get the mass without a triple balance scale. Is there a way? Thanks

Which unit is your weight? On Earth, a weight of 1 pound is approximately equal to a mass of 453.59237 grams, and a weight of 1 newton is approximately equal to a mass of 0.10197162 grams.

If you have a weight in newtons, the method used to derive mass (on Earth) is to divide by 9.80665 m/s².
