## A 5.00-L sample of pure glycerol has a mass of 6 .30  ×  10 3 g. What is the density of glycerol in g/cm 3 ?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The density of glycerol in g/cm3 is to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Density of a substance is a measure of compactness of that substance. It is defined as the mass of a substance present in per unit of its volume. The unit of density is derived when the unit of mass is divided by the unit of volume. Its most common units are g/cm3 and g/mL.

Density = Mass Volume

It is known that 1 liter = 103 cm3, conversion of liters to cm3 is as:

103cm31 L

### Explanation of Solution

Conversion of volume in liters to cm3 is as:

1 liter = 103 cm3

So,

5 liter = 5 L×103cm3L
