An empty container with an unknown volume is weighed and found to have a mass of 

84.7 g. The container is then filled with a liquid with a density of 1.005 g/cm3 and reweighed. The mass of the container and the liquid is 150.9 g. Determine the volume of the container to the appropriate number of significant figures.

Step 1

Given,

Mass of the container = 84.7 g.

Liquid density = 1.005 g/cm3

M...

The volume can be calculated by using following formula
Mass
Volume
Density
Weight of the liquid is calculated as follows,
Weight of the liquid Weight of filled container - Weight of empty container
Weight of the liquid = 150.9 g - 84.7 g
Weight of the liquid = 66.2 g
