Asked Jan 18, 2019

Sulfuric acid is used in car batteries. A driver needs to add 1.4 kilograms of sulfuric acid to his car; sulfuric acid has a density of 1.84 grams per milliliter. What volume of sulfuric acid, in gallons, is needed, if 1 gallon = 3785 milliliters? Round your answer to the correct number of significant figures (assume conversion factors are exact), and include units in your answers in the form: "##### gal"


Expert Answer

Step 1

Driver needs 1.44 kg (1440 g) sulfuric acid

density = mass/volume


density of sulfuric acid = 1.84 g/mol


volume of sulfuric acid = 1440 g/1.84 g/ml

                                                   = 782.61 ml

Now, 1 gallon = 3785 ml


Volume of sulfuric acid taken = 782.61/3785

                                                                 = 0.207 gallon

Step 2

For 1.4 kg (1400 g), 

volume of sulfuric acid to be taken = 1400 g/1.84 g/ml
