$\text{Volume}$ $\cong$ $175 \cdot m L$

#### Explanation:

$\text{Density}$, $\rho$ $=$ $\text{Mass"/"Volume}$

And thus, $\text{Volume}$ $=$ $\frac{\text{Mass}}{\rho}$

And now we put in some noombers:

$\text{volume"_"Hg}$ $=$ $\frac{2.4 \cdot \cancel{k g} \times {10}^{3} \cdot \cancel{g} \cdot \cancel{k {g}^{-} 1}}{13.6 \cdot \cancel{g} \cdot m {L}^{-} 1}$

$\cong 175 \cdot \frac{1}{\frac{1}{\text{mL}}} = 175 \cdot m L$

Often when you pick up a phial of mercury you are surprised at its mass. Mercury is dense stuff.
