weight or mass of water

density of water we say is equal to 1 g/cubic cm.

can we say that 1 cubic cm volume of water will weigh 1 gram (mass of water)?

Can we deduce such result from density of the given substance?

Kindly enlighten me.

with warm regards,

Aranga

You have been given the density of water: 1 g/cm^3. The density of a substance is given by (density) = mass / volume. So if (density) = 1 g/cm^3 then 1 cm^3 of water has a mass of 1 g.
