Step 1

The density of a given substance is defined as the measurement which is used to compare the amount of matter that is present in it to that of its volume. It can also be termed as the ratio of the total mass of the object to that of its volume. Mathematically,

Step 2

In the given problem,

The mass of the cylinder is given to be 30.00 g.

The initial volume of water is given to be 20.00 mL.

The final volume of (cylinder+water) is given to be 30.1 mL.

The volume for cylinder can be calculated as follows:

Step 3

The density of the cylinder can ...
