What is the possible identity of a metal that has a #23.9*g# mass and a volume of #8.8*mL#? Chemistry Measurement Density 1 Answer anor277 Sep 16, 2016 Answer: Possibly aluminum. Explanation: #"Density, "rho# #=# #"Mass"/"Volume"# #=# #(23.9*g)/(8.8*mL)# #=# #2.7*g*mL^-1#. As metals go, this is not particularly dense, and we could tentatively identify the metal as aluminum.
