(a)What is the Volume of the block in cm^3 (centimeters cubed)?

(b) What's the Volume in Liters?

(c)What is the density of the block of wood in g/mL?

Can someone please explain what the steps are for converting this? I would really appreciate it! Thank You! = )

Homework?

(a) to calculate the volume you need to multiply all three dimensions (length, width and height) together. You'll get the volume in cm^3

(b) to convert the volume from cm^3 to liters, you can use our converter

(c) to find the density in g/mL you need to divide the mass of the block in grams by its volume in milliliters. You have the mass, and you got the volume in liters in step (b). There are 1000 mL in a liter. So simply divide your block mass by its volume in liters and then divide the result by 1000.
