    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.

    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???

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

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

    34.8kg x 1 g =34800
    1000

    Yes, that is correct.
