# What is the density of a rectangular prism that has a mass of 16.04*g, and dimensions of 1.26*cmxx3.30*cmxx1.40*cm?

Well, $\rho = \text{Mass"/"Volume}$

#### Explanation:

The mass we are given in grams......we convert all the dimensions into $c m$, to give an answer in $\rho = g \cdot c {m}^{-} 3$.....which is a common unit of density for chemists..........

$\rho = \frac{16.04 \cdot g}{1.26 \cdot c m \times 3.30 \cdot c m \times 1.40 \cdot c m}$

$= 2.76 \cdot g \cdot c {m}^{-} 3$.

Do you agree? All care taken but no responsibility admitted!
