# A man has a 50.0 cm^3 bottle completely filled with 163 g of a slimy, green liquid. What is the density of the liquid?

Sep 6, 2016

$3.26 \frac{g}{c {m}^{3}}$

#### Explanation:

To calculate the density, we'll use the formula below:

 "Density = (Mass)/(Volume)

• Usually, density will have units of $\frac{g}{m L}$ when dealing with a liquid or units of $\frac{g}{c {m}^{3}}$ when dealing with a solid.

• The mass has units of grams, $g$.

• The volume can have units of $m L$ or $c {m}^{3}$

We are given the mass and the volume, both of which have good units. All we have to do is plug the given values into the equation:

$D e n s i t y = \frac{163 g}{50.0 c {m}^{3}}$

Thus, the liquid has a density of $3.26 \frac{g}{c {m}^{3}}$.
