Step 1

Density = It may be defined as mass of a substance per unit volume.

Mathematically,

Step 2

Here we have,

Density of substance A = 3.20 g/mL

i.e.,

Substance A will be 3.20 g in 1 mL of solution.

Density of substance B = 2.41 g/mL

i.e.,

Substance B will be 2.41 g in 1 mL of solution.

Step 3

As question says, these two substances are liquids and they do not mix with each other and we are adding equal amount of substance A and substance B in a container.

It is a fact that lighte...
