7. Density is simply given by the formula d=m/v, so density is equal to mass divided by volume. So, if galena (a very nice looking cubic mineral) has a mass of 504.5 g and volume of 48.6 ml, the density is calculated by:
d = m/v
d = 504.5 g/48.6 ml
d = 10.4 g/ml
This is a very dense mineral, halite (table salt) by ...
