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.
Okay, I think I got it! Thanks a bunch :)
