I have a problem, the density of the metal = mass (2)  mass (1) over Volume (2)  Volume (1) =
My first mass and volume are 15.098g and 5.5 mL. the second mass and volume are 11.3235g and 4.0 mL. I got 9.04g/mL as my answer if this isnâ€™t right can you walk me through the steps?

DrBob222,
I don't know how the experiment is being performed; however, if the formula
(M2M1)/(V2V1) is correct, then
M2M1 = 11.323515.098 = 3.77
V2V1 = 4.05.5 = 1.5
Then 3.77/1.5 = ?? which isn't 9.04.
