Question

# Calculate the density of a sample with a mass of 22.5 g and a volume of $5.0 \mathrm{cm}^{3}$. Use the equation: density = mass/volume.

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 2

To determine the density, identify the value of the mass and volume stated in the problem. In this case, the mass indicated is $\textbf{22.5 g}$ while volume is $\textbf {5.0 $cm^3$}$. Then use the formula:

$\dfrac{mass}{volume}$ = density

Substitute the values:

$\dfrac{22.5 g}{5.0 cm^3}$ = 4.5g/cm$^3$
