Answer:

Unknown, given your conditions.

Explanation:

#"Density"# #=# #"Mass"/"Volume"#

I have an idea that the density of silver metal is greater than #10.0*g*mL^-1# (this is typical of the heavier metals!). You will have to look this up yourself. Anyway, of course given the volume, and given the correct density, you can easily access the mass by the product:

#"volume "xx" density"#. Capisce?
