# How do we find the densities of the following solvents if.....?

## A $5.0 \cdot m L$ volume of benzene has a mass of $4.4 \cdot g$. A $5.0 \cdot m L$ volume of ethyl alcohol has a mass of $3.9 \cdot g$....

$\text{Density, } \rho$ $=$ $\text{Mass"/"Volume}$; benzene is the denser liquid.
${\rho}_{\text{benzene}}$ $=$ $\frac{4.4 \cdot g}{5.0 \cdot m L}$ $=$ ??*g*mL^-1 $=$ $0.88 \cdot g \cdot m {L}^{-} 1$.
${\rho}_{\text{ethanol}}$ $=$ $\frac{3.9 \cdot g}{5.0 \cdot m L}$ $=$ ??*g*mL^-1 $=$ ?*g*mL^-1.
