Which combination of units expresses density?

  1. (a) mass/(time)3
  2. (b) mass/(kg)3
  3. (c) mass/(length)3
  4. (d) mass/m2

Expert Solution
To determine
Unit of density.

Explanation of Solution

Given Info: Unit of density is given.

Explanation:

A derived unit is combination and multiples of standard unit. For example density,

ρ=mV

Here,

m is the mass

V is the volume

Unit of mass is kilogram (kg) and unit of volume is cubic centimeter (cm3) .

Derived unit of density is,

ρ=m(kg)V(
