Diamonds are measured in carats (1.0 carat=0.200g). The density of diamond is 3.51 g/cm^3. What is the VOLUME of a 5.0 carat diamond?

  1. You're given two things and asked to find another. You're given density, mass, and asked to find the volume.
    The formula for density is:

    D= Mass
    ------
    Volume

    Rewrite this formula for Volume and you get:
    V= M
    ---
    D

    A 5.0 carat diamond will have a mass of:
    5(0.200 g)= 1 g. You are already given the density of 3.51, so all that's left to do is plug in.

    V= 1g/3.51 g.cm^3= .285 cm^3
