I have this problem....

Hexane has a density of 0.659 g/ml. How many milliliters (mL) would a student need to pour in order to get 49.5 g of hexane?

Am I to solve by using mass = density x volume? And if so, is the answer 32.62mL?

yes and no.

mass = volume x density

45.9g = volume x 0.695

Solve for volume. That answer is not 32.62 mL but more than twice that.
