Density is found by dividing Mass by volume where mass is in grams and volume is in milliliters. 20 liters=20,000 ml so the calculation becomes 158/20,000 which yiels a result of .0079

### What experimental method can determine the density of metal?

Density is the mass of the object divided by its volume. By this
principle, to determine the density of a metal, place the metal
onto a scale to measure its mass. After this, place the metal into
a beaker of water and measure the volume change in the beaker.
Divide the mass by the volume and you get the density.
