Step 1

The length is given as 1m and the cross sectional area is 2 cm x 2 cm. The mass is given as 3.02 kg, in order to calculate density, the following relation can be used,

Step 2

Since, it is required to calculate the density in grams per centimeter cube, we have to convent mass and length into the respective unit.

Step 3

Now, let us calculate volume, which can be calculated as,

V = L x B x H

B x ...
