1. The volume of an object with a mass of 24 grams and a density of 3 grams per milliliter is (B) 8 milliliters.

### What is volume?

• Volume is a measurement of three-dimensional space that is occupied.
• It is frequently numerically quantified using SI-derived units (such as the cubic meter and liter) or various imperial units (such as the gallon, quart, and cubic inch).
• The volume of a container is commonly understood to be its capacity; that is, the amount of fluid (gas or liquid) that the container can hold, rather than the amount of space that the container occupies.
To find the volume of the given object:
• Given, mass = 24 grams, density =3 grams
• We know, that density = Mass ÷ Volume
• So, 3 = 324/V
• Then, V = 24/3 = 8 milliliters
Therefore, the volume of an object with a mass of 24 grams and a density of 3 grams per milliliter is (B) 8 milliliters.
