Recall that ** density** is the ratio of the mass and volume of an object:

$\overline{){\mathbf{density}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{mass}}{\mathbf{volume}}}$

A piece of metal weighs 22.25 g. When a student places it into a graduated cylinder containing water, the liquid rises from 21.25 cm^{3} to 23.75 cm^{3}. What is the density of the ore?

A) 8.90 g/cm^{3}

B) 0.937 g/cm^{3}

C) 0.112 g/cm^{3}

D) 9.37 g/cm^{3}
