#### Explanation:

In order to determine the density of the mineral, we have to use the following formula:

- D represents density and it will have units of
#g/(mL)# when talking about a liquid or units of#g/(cm^3)# when talking about a solid. - M represents mass and will have units of grams
#g# . - V represents volume and it will have units of
#mL# or#cm^(3)#

We know the mass and volume, both of which have the appropriate units so all we have to do is plug the numbers into the formula:
