Question

# An object has a mass of 46.5 g and a volume of$15.5 \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }$. What is the density of the object? (1)$0.3 \mathrm { g } / \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }$(2)$46.5 \mathrm { g } / \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }$(3)$3.0 \mathrm { g } / \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }$(4)$720.8 \cdot g / \mathrm { cm } ^ { 3 }$

1 of 2

To calculate for the density of the object:

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

Given:

Mass = 46.5 g

Volume = 15.5 cm$^{3}$

Density = ?

Solve:

\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*}
