Density is just the number of particles per unit volume. The more stuff in a given volume, the more dense it is. The mass is directly proportional to the number of particles, so the units can be #"g/cm"^3#.

Thus, the density is

#color(blue)(D) = "7.5 g"/("1.5 cm"^3) = color(blue)("5.0 g/cm"^3)#

What is this density in #"kg/dm"^3#?
