What is the volume of an object that has a mass of 24 grams and a density of 6.6 g/mL?
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
You are told that this unknown object has a mass of
#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.
