The density of silver (Ag) is 10.5000 g/cm^3. How do you find of Ag that occupies 965 cm^3 of space?

To find the mass, multiply the density by the volume.

Explanation:

$\rho , \text{density}$ $=$ $\text{Mass"/"Volume}$.

And thus $\text{Mass}$ $=$ $\rho \times \text{volume}$

$=$ $10.500 \cdot g \cdot c {m}^{-} 3 \times 965 \cdot c {m}^{3}$

$=$ $10132.5 \cdot g$.

Silver currently sells for \$0-63" USD "g^-1. How much is your lump worth?
