## A laboratory beaker can hold 150 mL . How many fluid ounces can it hold? ( 128 fluid ounces = 3 .785 L )

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The number of fluid ounces, a 150 mL laboratory beaker can hold is to be calculated.

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

1 L=1000 mL128 fluid ounces=3.785 L

Thus, correct conversion factors will be (1 L1000 mL)and(128 fluid ounces3.785 L)
