## A can of soda contains 12 fluid ounces. What is this volume in mL? ( 128 fluid ounces = 3 .785 L )

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The volume of 12 fluid ounces is to be calculated in mL.

Concept Introduction:

Dimensional analysis is useful in converting one unit to another.

To convert a quantity au1 from one unit to another, that is, u1u2, first write a conversion factor u2u1, then multiply the conversion factor with the given quantity au1, cancelling units to get the quantity in the desired unit as follows:

au1×u2u1=au2

### Explanation of Solution

To convert fluid ounces to mL, first write the correct conversion factors by using the following relationship as follows:

1 L=1000 mL128 fluid ounces=3.785 L

Thus, correct conversion factors will be (1000 mL1 L)and(3.785 L128 fluid ounces)
