# Question #0f077

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

A substance's **density** tells you the mass of *one unit of volume* of that substance.

In your case, the density of corn oil is said to be equal to *milliliters*, **one unit of volume** will be equal to

This means that *for every*

You can thus use the density of corn oil as a conversion factor to help you determine how many milliliters are equivalent to

#500 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g"))) * overbrace("1 mL"/(0.92color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g")))))^(color(blue)("the density of corn oil")) = "543.8 mL"#

You *should* round this off to one **sig fig**, the number of sig figs you have for the mass of corn oil, but I'll leave it rounded to two sig figs

#"volume" = color(green)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)("540 mL")color(white)(a/a)|)))#
