Question

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... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseThe 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 fullscreen
