Answer:

#rho=8# #g//cm^3#

Explanation:

Density is given by the ratio of a(n) object/substance's mass to volume.

#rho=m/v#

Typical units of density are #kg//m^3# and #g//cm^3#. Because we are given the mass in grams and the volume in milliliters, we'll use #g//cm^3#. One mL is equivalent to one cubic centimeter.

Therefore, we have:

#rho=(200g)/(25cm^3)=8# #g//cm^3#

The density is #8# grams per cubic centimeter.
