Explanation:
To calculate the density, we have to use the formula below:

Usually, density will have units of
#g/(mL)# when dealing with a liquid or units of#g/(cm^3)# when dealing with a solid. 
The mass has units of grams,
#g# . 
The volume can have units of
#mL# or#cm^3#
We are given the mass and the volume, both of which have good units. All we have to do is plug the given values into the equation:
Thus, the liquid has a density of 0.843 g/mL.
