can you go thru the steps to work this out please....

how many grams of alcohol with a density of 0.900 g/cm ^3 (cm cubed) will have the same volume as 20.0g of mercury,with a density of 13.6 g/cm ^3

Do you have to find the volume of mercury first???

I know the answer is 1.32....i just dont know how to get there....

Thanks ANDY

**drwls**, Saturday, May 15, 2010 at 1:03amThe volumes are the same. Volume in mass divided by density.

(mass/density) of mercury = (mass/density) of alcohol

Alcohol mass = [(alcohol density)/(mercury density)]*(mecury mass)

= (0.900/13.6)*20 = 1.324 g

Rouded to two figures, that is 1.32 g
