A straightforward method of finding the density of an object is to measure its mass and then measure its volume by submerging it in a graduated cylinder. What is the density of a 240-g rock that displaces 89.0 cm3 of water? (Note that the accuracy and practical applications of this technique are more limited than a variety of others that are based on Archimedes’ principle.)

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 Formula to find the density of a substance, …… (1) Here, is density, is mass and is volume of the substance.
