# Ethanol has a density of 0.79g/ml. What is the volume in quarts, of 1.50kg of alcohol?

The volume would be $\text{2.01 qt}$.

#### Explanation:

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

$1.50 \cancel{\text{kg"xx(1000 "g")/(1 cancel"kg")="1500 g}}$

Density Equation

$\text{density"="mass"/"volume}$

Solve for volume.

$\text{volume"="mass"/"density}$

$\text{volume"=(1500 cancel"g")/(0.79 cancel"g"/"mL")="1899 mL}$

Convert milliliters to quarts. (1 mL = 0.00105669 qt)
$1899 \cancel{\text{mL"xx("0.00105669 qt")/(1 cancel"mL")="2.01 qt}}$ (rounded to three significant figures)
