Answer:

Density of the final mixture is 1133 #(kg)/m^3#

Explanation:

You need to compute final density. When you mix two different compounds:

#(V_1timesd_1) + (V_2timesd_2) = (V_1 + V_2)timesd_(mixture)#

#(1times1) + (2times1.2) = 3timesd_(mixture)#

Note that 1000 #(kg)/m^3# is the same as 1 kg per liter. The density of brine is therefore 1.2 #(kg)/L#.

Final volume is 3 liters because you indicated that there is no volume change when these two are mixed well.

You can solve the above equation:

#1 + 2.4 = 3timesd_(mixture)#

#3.4/3 = d_(mixture)#

#d_(mixture) = 1.133 (kg)/L#

or density of the final mix is 1133 kg per cubic meter.
