# 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?

$\text{density } \rho$ $=$ $\text{Mass"/"Volume}$, and thus units of $g \cdot m {L}^{-} 1$ are reasonable.
$17.4 \cdot \cancel{m L} \times 0.798 \cdot g \cdot \cancel{m {L}^{-} 1}$ $\cong$ $14 \cdot g$
