Answer:

The volume of the liquid that has a mass of #"15.0 g"# is #"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.

#15.0cancel"g"xx(1"mL")/(0.79cancel"g")="19.0 mL"#
