Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Amy on Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 8:06pm.

At room temperature pure water has a density of 1.00 g/ mL. What mass of water (in grams) will fit into a container if 1.00 lb. of mercury completely fills the container?
Okay, here is what I solved so far.
Let's say H2o equals water and Hg equals mercury= 13.6g/mL. equals an expression for the density of mercury and h2o is expressed 1.00 g\ mL.

1. 13.6/mL. * 1lb./454 grams (equals grams in 1lb.) * 1,000 mL\ Liters * Liter\ 3.785 g.

Please help me! I am a beginning student in Chemistry. Until then, I will carefully review what is being taught in text and try to patiently solve the problems (I have two other questions related to this subject).
