A girl makes a sample of a new material and says that the density of the material is 0.85 g/cm. Can you tell how large a sample she made? How?

  • Science -

    The units of density are g/cm^3, not g/cm.

    The answer to your question is "no".

    Since Volume = Mass/(density), you need to know more than density to get mass or volume.
