Answer:

The volume would be #"2.01 qt"#.

Explanation:

Convert kg to g. (1 kg = 1000 g)

#1.50 cancel"kg"xx(1000 "g")/(1 cancel"kg")="1500 g"#

Density Equation

#"density"="mass"/"volume"#

Solve for volume.

#"volume"="mass"/"density"#

#"volume"=(1500 cancel"g")/(0.79 cancel"g"/"mL")="1899 mL"#

Convert milliliters to quarts. (1 mL = 0.00105669 qt)

#1899 cancel"mL"xx("0.00105669 qt")/(1 cancel"mL")="2.01 qt"# (rounded to three significant figures)
