How do you calculate the density of a piece of metal that is 25.0 g and has a volume of 2.5 cm^3?

$D e n s i t y \mathmr{and} D = \frac{m}{V}$

Explanation:

Using the equation we just plug in the values

$D = \frac{m}{V}$

$D = 25 g$/$2.5 c {m}^{3}$
$D = 10 g$/$c {m}^{3}$

Density is $\frac{m a s s}{v o l u m e}$. Using this relation, we can find that the density of the metal is 10 g/$c {m}^{3}$

Explanation:

Density is the mass of an material divided by its volume:

density $= \frac{m a s s}{v o l u m e}$

In this case,
mass = 25.0 g
volume = 2.5 $c {m}^{3}$

So we would simply plug these values into the equation to get:
density =(25.0 g)/(2.5 cm^3$=$ 10 g/$c {m}^{3}$
