A student obtained a clean, dry, glass stoppered flask. The weight of the flask and
stopper was 32.634 g. The student filled the flask with water and obtained a mass for the
full stoppered flask of 59.479 g. The density of water at the temperature of the experiment
was 0.9973 g/mL. Find the volume of the stoppered flask.
59.479g = mass full flask & stopper.
-32.634g = mass empty flask & stopper.
xxx = mass water in flask.
mass = volume x density.
Use density and mass to solve for volume of the water which also is the volume of the flask.
