This would be the density of a substance.

#### Explanation:

Density is a measure of the mass of a substance per unit volume of that substance:

$\underline{\overline{| \stackrel{\text{ ")(" ""density" = "mass"/"volume"" }}{|}}}$

For example, if some substance was found to have a mass of $1.45$ $\text{g}$ and occupies a volume of $12.7$ $\text{mL}$, then the density of this substance would be

$\text{density" = "mass"/"volume" = (1.45color(white)(l)"g")/(12.7color(white)(l)"mL") = color(red)(ul(0.114color(white)(l)"g/mL}$
