The density of ethanol, a colorless liquid that is commonly known as grain alcohol, is 0.798 g/mL. How would you calculate the mass of 17.4 mL of the liquid? Chemistry Measurement Density 1 Answer anor277 Aug 30, 2016 Answer: Simply mulitply the volume by the density. As we shall see, this is dimensionally consistent. Explanation: #"density "rho# #=# #"Mass"/"Volume"#, and thus units of #g*mL^-1# are reasonable. For this problem: #17.4*cancel(mL)xx0.798*g*cancel(mL^-1)# #~=# #14*g# Related questions How can density be used to identify substances? How can you find mass from density?
