Unformatted text preview: above. The mass of lead is given at 305.0 g. Although we are not given the volume directly, we do know that the sample is a cube (i.e., all sides of equal length), and that length of a side is 3.00 cm . The volume of this cube would be Volume = ( 3.00 cm) 3 = 27.0 cm 3 . Thus, the density of the cube of lead is density = mass/volume = 305.0 g / 27.0 cm 3 = 11.3 g/cm 3 . Notice that the density is the same no matter the size or shape of the sample....
