Re: grams/ml/volume/liter
What's the formula for mass, volume, and density? Use that, plug in your known values, and solve for the unknown. Be sure all units are consistent.

2.34ml x 13.6g =3182.4 g
ml

Multiplied and ML cancelled leaving me with Grams

b. What is the volume in liters of 34.8 kg of this liquid

34.8kg x 1 g =34800
1000

34,800g x __1___ = 2558.8ml
13.6 g/ml

IS this right???

Yes, but check your arithmetic! 3 x 14= 42. The product of two smaller numbers can't be several thousand!
