AN EMPTY DENSITY BOTTLE WEIGHS 25GRAMS. IT WEIGHS 65GRAMS WHEN FILL WITH WATER. CALCULATE THE DENSITY OF THE LIQUID.

"Density bottle" is also called a specific gravity bottle, or pycnometer, which has a known capacity.
They come in different capacities. Common capacities are 2, 5, 10, 25, 50 ml.
The question does not specify the capacity, so an assumption is required. Assuming a 25 ml. capacity, then
net volume = 25 ml
net mass = 65-25 g = 40 g
Density = 40/25 g/ml = 1.6 g/ml
Note that the calculated density might change when the real capacity of the bottle is known.
75 g - 30 g
Mass of water= 45 g
65 g - 30 g
Mass of liquid x = 35
Density = mass/volume
= 0.77 cm cube
