The density of pure silver is 10.5 g/cm3 at 20 °C. If 5.25 g of pure silver pellets is added to a graduated cylinder containing 11.2 mL of water, to what volume level will the water in the cylinder rise?

since the temperature appears to play no role in the experiment, let's ignore it. 5.25g / (10.5g/cm^3) = 0.5cm^3 so, adding .5ml of Ag to 11.2ml of H_{2}O, that makes the total volume 11.7ml

11.7

11.8 ml
