## A 1 .5-cm 3 sample of silicon has a mass of 3.5 g. Calculate the density of silicon in g/cm 3 .

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The density of silicon in g/cm3 is to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Density of a substance is a measure of compactness of that substance. It is defined as the mass of a substance present in per unit of its volume. The unit of density is derived when the unit of mass is divided by the unit of volume. Its most common units are g/cm3 and g/mL.

Density = Mass Volume

### Explanation of Solution

The density of silicon is calculated as:

Density = Mass of siliconVolume of silicon

Substitute the given values in the above equation as:

Density = 3
