Answer:

#"Volume"# #~=# #175*mL#

Explanation:

#"Density"#, #rho# #=# #"Mass"/"Volume"#

And thus, #"Volume"# #=# #"Mass"/rho#

And now we put in some noombers:

#"volume"_"Hg"# #=# #(2.4*cancel(kg)xx10^3*cancelg*cancel(kg^-1))/(13.6*cancelg*mL^-1)#

#~=175*1/(1/"mL")=175*mL#

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