# How do you calculate the mass, in g, of 29.6 mL f mercury (Hg) if the density of mercury is 13.6 g/ml?

402.56g

#### Explanation:

Using the formula $D e n s i t y = \frac{M a s s}{V o l u m e}$, we can rearrange it as $M a s s = D e n s i t y \cdot V o l u m e$.

The volume given is 29.6mL and the density given is 13.6g/ml. Plugging it into our equation, we get
$M a s s = 29.6 \cancel{m l} \cdot \frac{13.6 g}{\cancel{m l}} = 402.56 g$
