# What is the volume of an object that has a mass of 24 grams and a density of 6.6 g/mL?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

The **density** of a substance is a useful property because it tells us the **mass** of exactly *one unit of volume* of that substance.

In this case, the unknown object has a density of **every milliliter** occupied by this object will have a mass of

You are told that this unknown object has a mass of **for every** *density* as a conversion factor to help you find the **volume** that would have a mass if

#24 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g"))) * overbrace("1 mL"/(6.6color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g")))))^(color(blue)("the given density")) = color(green)(bar(ul(|color(white)(a/a)color(black)("3.6 mL")color(white)(a/a)|)))#

The answer is rounded to two **sig figs**.
