# What is the mass of #"10 m"^3# of water given that water has a density of #"1 g/cm"^3# ?

##### 1 Answer

The mass of that much water will be equal to

#### Explanation:

Notice that you were given a volume of water,

The only thing you need to do to determine the mass of water is to use the water's density.

Density is defined as mass per unit of volume. In water's case, you know that **1 gram** of water occupies exactly *conversion factors*.

In one single step, you would get

Another way to look at this is

Since you're given volume, you can determine the mass in *grams* first, then convert it to kilograms.

Expressed in kilograms, you'd once again get
