Work Step by Step

This question asks us to determine whether a measurement is a measurement of length, area, volume, mass, density, time, or temperature. The measurement is 2.56 g/ $cm^{3}$. This is a measurement of density. The density formula is d=mass/volume. The unit for mass is normally grams, and the unit for volume is $cm^{3}$. This means that when you solve for density, you are dividing grams by $cm^{3}$. This results in the units for density, g/$cm^{3}$. This means this measurement is a measurement of density.
