I am confused on whether I should take the amount in ml and put it back into the density formula. Honestly i might be reading too deep into the question.

4.
If the density of water is 1.00 g/mL, what is the weight in pounds of 1.00 gallon of water? You may
assume that mass and weight are equivalent at the Earth's surface.

Step 1

Density of water is equal to 1.00 g/ml.

density is related to the mass (g) and volume (ml) by the formula,

density (g/ml) = mass(g)/volume (ml)

since density of water = 1.00 g/ml

that is, 1.00 g.ml = mass(g)/volume(ml)

which makes, mass (g) of water = volume (ml) of water

Given here, volume of water = 1.00 gallon, which is equal to mass of water

Convert volume of water from gallon (volume) to pounds (mass)

conversion factor for gal...
