Answer:

Well #rho_"density"# is given by the quotient...#rho="mass"/"volume"#

Explanation:

And so #rho_"propane"=(4300*g)/(10000*mL)=0.43*g*mL^-1#...

Note that when you fill an LPG cylinder (#"LPG=liquefied petroleum gas=propane"#) say for a barbecue, when you lift the filled cylinder you do notice the difference in mass between the empty and the filled cylinder.
