volume of 400 cubic centimeters. What is the density of the rock in grams per cubic centimeter? (g/cm³)

Convert the mass from kilograms to grams, then divide the mass by the cubic centimeters to find g/cm³.

1.08 kg x 1000

= 1080 grams {there are 1000 grams in 1 kilogram}

1080 g

---------- {divided grams by cm³}

400 cm³

=

**2.7 g/cm³**{divided}
