# A certain liquid has a density of 0.79 g/mL. What volume of this liquid has a mass of 15.0 g?

The volume of the liquid that has a mass of $\text{15.0 g}$ is $\text{19.0 mL}$.

#### Explanation:

"density"=("mass")/("volume")

"density"=(0.79"g/mL")=(0.79"g")/(1"mL")

To determine the volume of a substance given a specific mass, divide the given mass by the density of the substance.

$15.0 \cancel{\text{g"xx(1"mL")/(0.79cancel"g")="19.0 mL}}$
