1110 g

Work Step by Step

This is a density calculation, where we are given the density (8.9 g/$cm^{3}$) and the length of one side of a cube (5.00 cm) and we have to find the mass. First, to find the volume use the formula volume of a cube=$side length^{3}$. When we sub in 5 cm, we get a value of 125 $cm^{3}$. Now solve the problem using the equation density=mass/volume. When we sub in our values and solve for mass, we get a value of 1110 grams.
