#### Explanation:

As you know, a substance's density tells you the mass **per unit of volume** for that given substance.

In your case, the density of sulfur is said to be *cubic centimeters*, **unit of volume** be here?

Well, one unit of volume would be

That means that **every**

In other fords, **for every**

Since you have

#6.0 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("cm"^3))) * "2.0 g"/(1color(red)(cancel(color(black)("cm"^3)))) = color(green)("12 g")#
