4.1739 g (at 20 degrees C anyway)


You need to know the temperature that you're considering, and the density of the nitric acid at that temperature. This data is available in the public doman

If you're considering 20 degrees celcius, then the density of 65% nitric acid at that temperature is 1.3913^-3#.

Now simply use the relationship density = mass/volume, and rearrange for mass: mass = volume x density.

So the mass is 3 x 1.3913 = 4.1739 g.
