What does 0.1 cm3 of water weigh in grams?
Question Date: 2003-11-20
Answer 1:

This question comes down to a problem of density. Density is the property of a material that determines how much mass or "stuff" can fit in a certain volume or "space".

The density of a material is constant and will always be the same for that material. The density of water is defined to be 1 gram per milliliter. Since a milliliter of water is the same thing as a cubic centimeter of water, the density can also be written as 1g/cm3.
