Question

An object has a mass of 46.5 g and a volume of

15.5cm315.5 \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }

. What is the density of the object? (1)

0.3g/cm30.3 \mathrm { g } / \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }

(2)

46.5g/cm346.5 \mathrm { g } / \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }

(3)

3.0g/cm33.0 \mathrm { g } / \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }

(4)

720.8g/cm3720.8 \cdot g / \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }

Solution

Step 1
1 of 2

To calculate for the density of the object:

 Density=MassVolume\begin{align*}\ \text{Density} &= \frac{\text{Mass}}{\text{Volume}} & \end{align*}

Given:

Mass = 46.5 g

Volume = 15.5 cm3^{3}

Density = ?

Solve:

Density=46.5 g15.5 cm3Density=3 g/cm3\begin{align*} \text{Density} &= \frac{46.5\text{ g}}{15.5\text{ cm}^3} & \\[0.5 em] \text{Density} &= 3\text{ g/cm}^3 & \end{align*}
