# A Small Cube of Aluminum: Finding the Density

## A small cube of aluminum measures 15.6 mm on a side and weighs 10.25 g. What is the density of aluminum in g/cm³?

**Answer:**

Alright, here is my answer:

**Explanation:**

First, you have to find its volume.

Volume of cube (V) = side length³

= (15.6)³ mm³

= 3796.416 mm³ = 3.8 mL

And then, calculate the density.

Density = mass / volume

Density of aluminum = 10.25 g / 3.8 mL

= 2.7 g/mL

The measure of how densely a material is packed together is called density. What is the density of aluminum in g/cm³? The density of aluminum in g/cm³ is 657.05 g/cm³.
