The density of the corn oil is

#### Explanation:

In order to determine the density of a substance, you need to know its **mass** and **volume**.

To find the **mass of the corn oil**, subtract the mass of the beaker from the mass of the corn oil and the beaker.

The **volume of the corn oil** is given as

The density equation is:

To determine the **density of the corn oil**, substitute the known mass and volume into the equation and solve for density.
