Answer:

Well, we want to find the quotient......

Explanation:

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

And for chemists, the typical units are #g*mL^-1-=g*cm^-3#.

And thus you take the mass of a known volume of liquid....and solve the quotient.

And some typical values, #rho_(H_2O)=1*g*cm^-3#; or #rho_(Hg)=13.55*g*cm^-3#; #rho_(Br_2)=3.11*g*cm^-3#; #rho_"EtOH"=0.789*g*cm^-3#.

By the way, you won't be asked to find the density of bromine; there are few substances in the laboratory that are as dangerous or as corrosive as bromine.
