In practical terms:
Take the weight of the soil. Then add water, to fill up all the air pockets in the soil and measure how much water you use or take the weight again of the soil. (Hopefully the volume did not chance)...
The water has a density of about 1 kg/liter... so if you know how much water is added, then you know how much volume is added...
Until there it's the same for volume% and mass%, but after this it's different for both.
 OOPS - I just checked the date of the Opening Post - I guess we're a bit late with the answer? By now Tellie should be 4 years further in education And (s)he obviously never visits the forum anymore.

i.Weigh a bulk soil sample....W1
ii. Stir it vigorously in water in a beaker
iii. Filtrate the mixture
iv. Weigh the Sample ..W2
v. W2 - W1 = Volume of moisture in saturated sample.
moisture volume = air content by volume

And yes, we are doing repeated necromancy here.
