# What is the mass of a sample of material that has a volume of 55.1 cm^3 and a density of 6.72 g/cm^3?

${\rho}_{\text{density"="mass"/"volume}}$

#### Explanation:

And so $\text{mass"=rhoxx"volume} = 6.72 \cdot g \cdot \cancel{c {m}^{-} 3} \times 55.1 \cdot \cancel{c {m}^{3}}$

$\equiv 370.3 \cdot g$

$\text{370.272 g}$

#### Explanation:

Density: mass per unit volume of a substance.

$\text{Density"= "Mass"/"Volume}$

$\text{Mass = Density × Volume}$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{{\text{Mass") = 6.72 "g"/cancel("cm"^3) × 55.1 cancel("cm}}^{3}}$

color(white)("Mass") = 370.272\ "g"
