Answer:

You have specified the density, #rho#, by these parameters. And we know that #1*g=10^-3*kg# or that #10^3*g=1*kg#

Explanation:

And #rho# #=# #"Unit mass"/"Unit volume"#

Here #rho# #=# #(1*g)/(1*mL)# #=# #1*g*mL^-1#

i.e. #"mass"# #=# #"Volume"xxrho# #=#

#1*cancelLxx10^3*cancel(mL)*cancel(L^-1)xx1*g*cancel(mL^-1)#

#=# #10^3*cancelgxx10^-3*kg*cancel(g^-1)#

#=# #1*kg#
