Answer:

The volume is #"25.0 cm"^3#.

Explanation:

Density equation

#"density"=("mass")/("volume")#

Solution
Rearrange the density equation to isolate volume. Substitute the given values into the equation.

#"volume"=("mass")/("density")#

#"volume"=(282.5color(red)cancel(color(black)("g")))/(11.3color(red)cancel(color(black)("g"))/"cm"^3")##=##"25.0 cm"^3"#
