A 76.00 pound flat of mercury $156.50. The density of margarie is 13.534g/cm3. Find the price of 1cubic inch of mercury by calculating intermediate values

Step 1

**Given:**

The Cost of 76.00-pound flask of mercury = $156.50

The density of mercury is = 13.534 g/cm3

We need to find the price of 1 cubic inch of mercury.

Step 2

**Calculation:**

The Cost of 76.00-pound flask of mercury = $156.50

1-pound flask of Mercury = $156.50 / 76 dollars

= 2.05 dollars

**We know that , 1 pound = 453.592 g**

If 1 pound of Mercury = 453.592 g and costs 2.05 dollars

1 g will cost---------------?

On cross multiplication,

1 X 2.05 /453.592 g = 0.0045 dollars

So, the cos of 1 g Mercury = 0.0045 dollars

Step 3

**Calculating the volume of the flask:**

Density = Mass/volume

Volume = Mass /Density

Substitute the known values of mass (in g) and density ( in g/cm3) ,

Volume = 76 X 453.592 g / 13.534 g/cm3

= 2547.1 cc

= 155.43 Cubic inch

The volume of Mercury is 1...
