Amount of Matter in an Object?

Answer

It is difficult to assess the amount of matter in an object as matter exists in four states namely solid, liquid, gas and plasma. However, you can use various measurements, such as mass, weight and volume to calculate a numerical measure of the amount of matter in an object.
1 Additional Answer
In physics, the amount of matter in an object is the mass of that object.  There are three types of mass; inertial mass, active gravitational mass and passive gravitational mass. Matter is defined as anything that takes up space, can be perceived by your senses in some way, and has mass.
