Answer:

The density of the object is #0.32g/(cm^3).#

Explanation:

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

#D=M/V#

  • 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 good units so all we have to do is plug the numbers into the formula:

#D = (8.0g)/(25cm^(3))#

#D = 0.32g/(cm^(3))#
