If I have 10 silver coins and they weigh 55 grams and displace water from 25 mL to 35 mL, what is the density? What is the specific gravity?

  • chemistry -

    d = mass/volume = 55/10 = ??
    specific gravity is the same number. These must not be pure silver for the density of silver is about 10.5 g/cc.
