Answer:

#0.788 g/(mL)#

Explanation:

To calculate the density, we have to use the formula below:

#color(blue)( "Density = (Mass)/(Volume)"#

  • Usually, density will have units of #g/(mL)# when dealing with a liquid or units of #g/(cm^3)# when dealing with a solid.

  • The mass has units of grams, #g#.

  • The volume can have units of #mL# or #cm^3#

We are given the mass and the volume, both of which have good units. All we have to do is plug the given values into the equation:

#Density =(193g)/(245mL)#

Thus, the object has a density of 0.788 g/mL.
