$V = 220~m^3$

Work Step by Step

$M = 1.9 \times 10^5 ~kg = 1.9 \times 10^8~g$ We can find the volume of the whale: $V = \frac{M}{\rho}$ $V = \frac{1.9 \times 10^8~g}{0.85~g/cm^3}$ $V = 2.2\times 10^8~cm^3$ We can convert the volume to units of $m^3$: $V = (2.2\times 10^8~cm^3) \times \frac{1~m^3}{10^6~cm^3} = 220~m^3$
