# 6.5 mL of gasoline would have a mass of what?

Sep 10, 2017

Well we need to know the $\text{density}$ of gasoline.......

#### Explanation:

This site gives ${\rho}_{\text{gasoline}} = 0.75 \cdot g \cdot m {L}^{-} 1$.

And since $\rho = \text{Mass"/"Volume}$......

$\text{Mass"="Volume} \times \rho = 0.75 \cdot g \cdot m {L}^{-} 1 \times 6.5 \cdot m L$...I make this approx. $5 \cdot m L$..........

So would gasoline float on water?
