Answer:

#3.5 g/(cm^(3))#

Explanation:

To calculate the density, we'll use the formula below:

  • Usually, density will have units of #g/(mL)# when dealing with a liquid or units of #g/(cm^3)# when dealing with a solid.

  • The mass has units of grams, #g#.

  • The volume can have units of #mL# or #cm^3#

We are given the mass and the volume, both of which have good units. All we have to do is plug the given values into the equation:

#Density =(1.76 g)/(0.5cm^3)#

Therefore the diamond has a density of #3.5 g/(cm^3)#.
