Text Solution

Reasoning:

Volume of the sphere \begin{align} = \frac{4}{3} \end{align} $$\pi r^{3}$$ and mass is the product of density times volume.

What is the known?

Diameter of the sphere and density of the metal per \begin{align}{m^3} \end{align}.

What is the unknown?

Mass of the ball.

Steps:

Diameter

Radius \begin{align}\,r = \frac{{4.2}}{2} = 2.1\,\,cm \end{align}

Volume of the sphere

\begin{align}&= \frac{4}{3} \times \frac{{22}}{7} \times {(2.1)^3}\\ &= 38.808\,\,c{m^3}\\ &= \frac{4}{3}\pi {r^3} \end{align}

Density = $$8.9$$ g per \begin{align}c{m^3} \end{align}

Mass$$=$$volume$$×$$density.

\begin{align} &= 38.808\,\, \times \,8.9\\ &= 345.39\,g \end{align}

Mass of the ball \begin{align} = 345.39\,g \end{align}
