Determining the Density of an Unknown with a Graduated Cylinder

CHEM-H2SPOK

When $5.84 \textrm{ g}$ of an unknown sample is added to a graduated cylinder that initially read $11.5 \textrm{ mL}$ of water, the water level rises.

If the water level rises to $14.4 \textrm{ mL}$, what is the density of the material?

A

$0.41 \textrm{ g/mL}$

B

$0.51 \textrm{ g/mL}$

C

$2.0 \textrm{ g/mL}$

D

$2.5 \textrm{ g/mL}$

E

$5.84 \textrm{ g/mL}$
