Expert Answer:

The radius of a fluorine nucleus is 5 x 10–13 cm.

 

The mass of a F nucleus =19 / 6 x 1023 g = 3.2 x 10-26 kg

The volume of a F nucleus =     = 4/3 x π x (5 x 10-13)3 cm3

                                                               = 5.2 x 10-37 cm3

 

Density  =  mass

                 volume                               

                = 3.2   x 10-26 kg

                   5.2 x 10-37 cm3

                = 6.1 x 1010 kg cm-3
