That depends on the substance you're working with. The relationship between mass and volume goes through density, which is used express the mass of a substance per unit of volume.

#"density" = "mass"/"unit of volume"#

Take, for example, water. Water has a density of approximately #"1 g/mL"# at room temperature. This tells you that 1 mL of water weighs exactly 1 g at room temperature.

Here's how other substances compare with water (note that #"1 cm"^3 = "1 mL"#)

Equal volumes of foam, diamond, and iron will have different weights because these substances have different densities. So, whenever you have to determine the mass of 1 mL of a substance, use its density.

its depends on density
density of any fluid is mass per unit volume
for example- density of water is 1g= 1ml.
