The density is

#### Explanation:

**Volume of liquid is #"9.40 mL"#**

To determine mass, subtract the mass of the empty cylinder from the mass of the cylinder plus liquid.

**The mass of the liquid is #"13.09 g"#.**

Density is mass per unit volume. The equation for density is

Substitute your known values into the density equation and solve.
