Answer:

Clearly, you can assess the mass of the object.

Explanation:

#"Density, "rho# #=# #"Mass"/"Volume"#. And for chemists, #rho# typically has the units #g*mL^-1# or #g*cm^-3#.

Thus, if you had values for #rho# and #"volume"#, you could assess the mass of the object by taking the product:

#"Mass"="volume"xx"density"#.

Such a product gives units of grams as required, because #cancel(mL)xxg*cancel(mL^-1)="grams"#.
