To turn mass to weight you multiply the mass by 9.81 (depending on which level you are working at and on Earth's surface)
This is because:
where: W= weight, m = mass, g = gravitational field strengthLast edited by clarkey500; 08-09-2016 at 18:38.

I see you mention density in the thread title as well. The equation for that is:
p = m/V
where: p = density, m= mass and V = volume. You can rearrange the equation to m = pV to work out mass.
I should add the symbol for density isn't p but looks like a p.
