Answer:

Density is simply mass per unit volume. You have already supplied these quantities, now take the quotient.

Explanation:

Density #=# #rho# #=# #(853*g)/(310*cm^3)# #=# #??#

Whatever the numerical answer is (2.5 approx.), the units are #g*cm^(-3)#, mass per unit volume as required.

Would the marble float on water? Why or why not?
