Answer:

#Density or D = m/V#

Explanation:

Using the equation we just plug in the values

#D = m/V#

#D = 25g#/#2.5cm^3#
#D = 10g#/#cm^3#

Answer:

Density is #(mass)/(volume)#. Using this relation, we can find that the density of the metal is 10 g/#cm^3#

Explanation:

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

density #=(mass)/(volume)#

In this case,
mass = 25.0 g
volume = 2.5 #cm^3#

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