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.

a. What is the mass in grams of 234 mL of this liquid.

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??? - Sep 8th 2012, 02:08 PMHallsofIvyRe: grams/ml/volume/liter
Yes, but check your arithmetic! 3 x 14= 42. The product of two

**smaller**numbers can't be several thousand!
