Best Answer

Pyrite has a density of 4.8-5g/cm3

mass = density x volume

= (4.8-5)g/cm3 x 10 cm3

= 48 to 50 grams.

What is the mass of a piece of pyrite that has a volume of 40cm3?

Iron pyrite (FeS2) has a density of 4.8 to 5.0 grams per cm3. A piece of volume 40 cm3 would, therefore have a mass of volume*density = 192 to 200 grams.

Is a Nugget real gold or fools gold if a it has a mass of 100.0 g and displaces the water level in a graduated cylinder by 15.0cm3 from 10.0cm3?

density=g/cm3 The density of Gold is 19.3g/cm3 The density of Fool's Gold (pyrite) is 5g/cm3 The question is slightly ambiguous as first written so two calculations are given: # 100/15= 6.666g/cm3 So this nugget is possibly pyrite and not gold. 100/5= 20g/cm3 So this nugget is possibly gold.

If you have a sample of lead that is 140.0 cm3 how do you find its mass in grams?

By looking up it's density in a book. The density of lead is 11.34 g/cm3 at room temperature. So the mass of a 140.0 cm3 sample of lead is 11.34 g/cm3 * 140.0 cm3 = 1588 g

If a rock sample has a mass of 250g and a volume of 45 cm3 show the calculation for the density of the rock sample?
