Answer:

#"1040 g"#

Explanation:

Let's first convert the volume into mL:

#"1.45 L" * ("1000 mL")/("1 L") = "1450 mL"#

#"density"# #= ("mass")/("volume")#

So

#"mass" = "density" \ *\ "volume"#

#= "0.714 g/mL" * "1450 mL" = "1035.3 g"#

Final answer: the mass of ether is #"1040 g"# (#3# significant figures)

Answer:

#"1040 g"#.

Explanation:

The density being #"0.714 g/mL"# means that these ratios are all correct for ether:

#"0.714 g"/"1 mL" = "714 g"/"1000 mL" = "714 g"/"1 L"#

So, using these proportions, we can figure out the mass of a sample of ether, given that its volume is #"1.45 L"#:

#"714 g"/"1 L" = ("714 g" xx 1.45)/("1.45 L") = "1035.3 g"/"1.45 L"#

We'll need #3# significant figures in our answer, because that's the least number of significant figures given in the question—so, our answer would be rounded to #"1040 g"#.

Answer:

1.0353 kg.

Explanation:

The simplest way to handle it is like this:

Density = Mass / Volume, therefore Mass = Volume x Density.

Volume = 1.45 litres, and Density is 0.714 g/ml. Density in kg/litre is numerically identical.

So Mass = 1.45 x 0.714 = 1.0353 kg,
