A backpacker carries 3.25 L of white gas as fuel for her stove. How many pounds does the fuel add to her load? Assume the density of the gas is 0.97 g/cm^3.

  • chemistry - ,

    mass = volume x density
    mass = 3250 cc x 0.97 g/cc = ??

  • chemistry - ,

    Wouldn't it be 3.25 L x 0.97g/cc?

  • chemistry - ,

    No, but thanks for asking. It shows you are thinking about it.
    3.25 is L. density is given in g/mL (1 cc = 1 mL) so the units must match. 3.25 L = 3,250 mL and 3,250 mL x 0.97 g/mL = ??grams.

  • chemistry - ,

    3152.5 grams?
