Explanation:
To calculate the mass of the object, we have to use the following formula:
 Density will have units of

The mass has units of grams,
#g# . 
The volume will have units of
#mL# or#cm^3#
We are given the density and volume, both of which have good units so all we have to do is rearrange the equation to solve for the mass:
Thus, the object has a mass of 48.3g.
