The mass per unit

Answer :

Density is mainly determined by the intermolecular forces of attraction
Solids have high intermolecular forces of attraction, as a result, they have high density followed by liquids and gases which have less intermolecular forces of attraction. We can draw the following inference:-
On the basis of the above information the order of increasing densities of the given substances is:

Air (gas) < Exhaust from chimneys (condense gas)< Cotton(light porous solid)  < Water (liquid) < Honey(Thich liquid) < Chalk(heavy porous solid) < Iron(solid).
