# Thread: grams/ml/volume/liter

1. ## grams/ml/volume/liter

11.Mercury has a density of 13.6 g /mL. (Show your work)
a. What is the mass in grams of 234 mL of this liquid.

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

2. ## 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!

Yes, that is correct.
