#### Explanation:

- Assume the following data for the density of water and nitric acid.

#HNO_3=1.42" g/ml"# #("concentrated"# )

#H_2O=1.00" g/ml"# # ("at " 4^oC# ) - Since the provided data are in grams, convert it to volume. Observe uniformity of units; i.e.,

#V_(HNO_3)=(630cancel(g))/((1.42cancel(g))/(ml))=443.6620mL~~443.7mL#

#V_(H_2O)=(6500cancel(g))/((1.00cancel(g))/(ml))=6500mL# - Find the volume of the solution. Note that volume solution is the summation of the volume of the solute and the solvent as shown below.

#"Volume"_("solution")="volume solute"+"volume solvent"#

4. Find the mole value of nitric acid

5. From the formula
