  A glass vessel weighed 20.2376g when empty and 20.3102g when filled to an etched mark with water at 4 degrees Celsius. The same vessel was the dried and filled to the same mark with a solution at 4 degrees Celsius. The vessel was now found to weigh 20.3300g. What is the density of the solution in g/mL?

Question

A glass vessel weighed 20.2376g when empty and 20.3102g when filled to an etched mark with water at 4 degrees Celsius. The same vessel was the dried and filled to the same mark with a solution at 4 degrees Celsius. The vessel was now found to weigh 20.3300g. What is the density of the solution in g/mL? (dH20 at 4 degrees = 1.000g/mL)

Step 1

A glass vessel weighed 20.2376g when empty and 20.3102g when filled to an etched mark with water at 4 degrees Celsius. The same vessel was the dried and filled to the same mark with a solution at 4 degrees Celsius. The vessel was now found to weigh 20.3300g. We have to determine the density of the solution in g/mL.

Step 2

Calculate the volume of glass vessel or water:

At 4°C,

Density of water = 1.000 g/mL

Mass of vessel with water = 20.3102 g

Mass of empty vessel = 20.2376 g help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMass of water Density of water = Volume occupied by water Mass of water = Mass of filled vessel - mass of empty vessel = 20.3102g 20.2376g 0.0726 g Mass of water 0.0726 g . Volume occupied by water Density of water 1.000 g/mL Volume occupied by water = 0.0726 mL fullscreen
Step 3

Calculate the density of given solution-

Mass of vessel with solution = 20.3300 g

Mass of empty v... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMass of solution Density of solution Volume of solution Mass of solution = Mass of filled vessel with solution - mass of empty vessel = 20.3300g-20.2376g 0.0924 g . Density of solution = 0.0924 g 1.27 g/mL 0.0726 mL fullscreen
