The density of pure gold is 19.3 g/centimeter cube. A quantity of what appears to be gold has a mass of 465 grams and a volume of 26.5 mL. Is the substance likely to be pure gold?


please tell me how you got your answer. Thanks!

density = mass/volume
You know mass is 465 grams.
You know the volume is 26.5 mL or 26.5 cc.
calculate density and compare to 19.3
