Density is the Density is the mass per unit mass per unit
density = mass / density = mass / volumevolume
If 96.5 grams of If 96.5 grams of gold has a gold has a
volume of 5 cubic volume of 5 cubic centimeters, centimeters, what is its what is its density?density?
SolutionSolution•Step 1 Write the formula Step 1 Write the formula d=m/vd=m/v
•Step 2 Substitute given numbers Step 2 Substitute given numbers and units d=96.5 grams/ 5 cubic and units d=96.5 grams/ 5 cubic centimeterscentimeters
•Step 3 Solve for unknown variable Step 3 Solve for unknown variable d= 19.3 grams / cubic centimetersd= 19.3 grams / cubic centimeters
