The density of silver (Ag) is 10.5 g/cm^3. How do you find the mass of Ag that occupies 965 cm^3 of space?
To calculate the mass of the
- Usually, density will have units of
The mass has units of grams,
The volume will have units of
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:
