What is the density of an object that has a volume of 245 ml and a mass of 193 grams?
To calculate the density, we have to use the formula below:
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,
The volume can have units of
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:
Thus, the object has a density of 0.788 g/mL.
