Previously Sciber text gave you the opportunity to calculate
density. Remember the formula is: .
Data has been collected for things found naturally on the Earth. There
is nothing "tricky" about this data. In fact, if you wish, you
may use a calculator to assist you! 
Now
you need to test your math ability! Use the data in the table below to
calculate the densities of some common materials on earth.
Substance 
Mass
in grams 
Volume in
cubic centimeters

Density
in grams/cubic centimeters 
1. Gold 
193.2g 
10 cm^{3} 

2.Oxygen 
1.33g 
100 cm^{3} 

3.Water 
10.0g 
10 cm^{3} 

4.Helium 
1.663g 
10,000 cm^{3} 

5.Mercury 
67.75g 
5 cm^{3} 

6.Copper 
224g 
25 cm^{3} 



After completing your calculations check your
answers by highlighting the box below. 
1. 19.32 g/cm^{3},
2. .001331 g/cm^{3 }, 3. 1 g/cm^{3}, 4. 0.0001663
g/cm^{3}, 5. 13.55 g/cm^{3}, 6. 8.96 g/cm^{3}
