Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, first you want to find the volume. Do that by multiplying the length by the width by the height. Your answer will be in cubic centimeters. Next, use the formula Density = mass/volume to find your answer. Density's unit in this case would be g/mL so make sure you label your answer. If you get stuck, just ask. Hope this helps!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oops! not g/mL. Density will be in \[g/cm ^{3}\] sorry for the confusion.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[Density = \frac{ mass }{ volume }\] \[Volume = Length * Width * Height \] So you have to find the volume and r units will be cubic centimeters. Substitute mass and volume to the 1st equation and get the answer in grams per cubic centimeters.
