gold and silver have densities of 19.3 and 10.5 grams per cubic centimer, respectively. If you have eual volumes of each, which one will have the larger mass?
I am thinking the gold. how do i prove it?

Thank you

  • physics -

    mass = volume * density
    same volume, so high density has more mass
