# Cork has a density of 0.240 g/cm. What volume would 10.0 grams of cork have?

41.7 ml or $41.7 c {m}^{3}$

#### Explanation:

D = M/V so substituting the values into the equation gives.

$0.240 = \frac{10}{V}$ Solving for V multiply both sides by V.

$V \times 0.240 = V \times \frac{10}{V}$ This results in

$V \times 0.240 = 10$ divide both sides by 0.240 gives

$V \times \frac{0.240}{0.240} = \frac{10}{0.240}$ This gives the answer

V = 41.7 ml
