Answer:

The mass of the silver is #"10100 g"# or #"10.1 kg"#.

Explanation:

#"density"=("mass")/("volume")#

#"mass"="density"xx"volume"#

#"mass"=(10.5color(white)(.)"g")/color(red)cancel(color(black)("cm"^3))xx965color(red)cancel(color(black)("cm"^3))="10100 g"# or #"10.1 kg"# (rounded to three significant figures)

The density triangle below gives definitions of mass, volume and density, and shows how to solve for any of the three variables.
