The student measures the mass of an object as 2.32 grams and its volume as 34.56 mL. The density calculated by the student is 0.067129629. Here, the units in which density has been calculated is not given.
As 2.32/34.56 = 0.067129629, the density calculated by the student in g/mL is correct. If the density is required in kg/m^3 it would involve multiplying the density that has been calculated by 10^6.
The information provided in the question is not sufficient to state exactly why the density that has been calculated is incorrect.
