Since the material is same, the density is also same. The formula for mass of the sphere m =Volume x density

=4/3 (pi) (r)^3 x density

m1= 160g, r1=8cm.

r2=4cm, m2=?

160=4/3 (pi) (8)^3x density-----(1)

m2=4/3 (pi) (4)^3x density-----(2)

now equation (2)/(1)

m2/160= (4)^3/(8)^3

m2=(4/8)^3 x 160

=160/8

=20 gm

simple formula is

m2=(r2/r1)^3 x m1
