# Can you calculate specific gravity using mass?

This exercise is giving me this:
Mass of Pycnometer 25.428g
Mass of Pycnometer filled with water 45.021g
Mass of Pycnometer filled with liquid X 42.874g
What is the specific gravity of liquid X?
I know how to solve for specific gravity but using density... since I do not have a volume I can’t figure out the...

I know how to solve for specific gravity but using density... since I do not have a volume I can’t figure out the density, so how do I use mass for specific gravity?
