Lead has a density of 11.34 g/cm³. A piece of lead weighs 520 grams. What is the volume of this piece of lead? Round to hundredths. Note: d = m/v

since d=m/v then v=m/d so 520/11.34 = v so the volume is 45.86 rounded to the nearest hundredth

The equation for density is mass divided by volume. they have given you the density and asked you to find the volume. since the density is a constant no matter the mass or the volume we can simply manipulate the equation for the variable we need. d = m/v turns into d * v = m turns into v = m/d 520/11.34 = volume
