A flask weighs 95 g when empty. When
filled with 200 mL of a certain liquid, the weight is 328 g. What volume (in
milliliters) would 1,000 g of the liquid
I am confused on set up I know d=m/v so v=m/d
weight 200 mL liquid + flask = 328 g.
weight empty flask = 95 g
weight 200 mL liquid 328-95 = 233 g.
So density of the liquid is mass/volume = 233 g/200 mL = 1.165 g/mL (which is more significant figures than allowed).
volume = mass/density = 1,000 g/1.165 g/mL = ?? mL
or you can do it by dimensional analysis.
1000 g x (1 mL/1.165 g) = ??
The answer should be the same either way.
