Can somone please explain how to do this problem:
How many cubic centimeters of olive oil have the same mass as 1.00L of gasoline? the density of gas is .66g/ml and olive oil is .92g/ml
Thank you for your help
How much does 1.00 L gasoline weigh? That will be mass = volume x density. Substitute 1000 mL for volume and 0.66 g/mL for density and solve for mass.
That's what you want the olive oil to weigh. So mass olive oil = volume x density. You know density and mass solve for volume in cc.
