# If 89.2 mL of a liquid has a mass of 75.2 g, how would you calculate the liquid's density?

Aug 29, 2016

$0.843 \frac{g}{m L}$

#### Explanation:

To calculate the density, we have to 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:

$D e n s i t y = \frac{75.2 g}{89.2 m L}$

Thus, the liquid has a density of 0.843 g/mL.
