    I also have to express my answer to two significant figures. The equation that I use is density= Mass/Volume. I used both qualities but I doesn't seem to be accepting it. I know that the units will be g/mL. Anything I'm missing?

    If you think about this logically, the volume of the object placed in the water will be equal to the amount of water that it DISPLACES, not equal to either the initial or final volumes. Find how many mL of water the object displaces, and then calculate density using that volume.

    Wow... that worked... THANKS! I didn't think I would ever guess that... I had got 1.8 g/mL.
