The volume of ethyl alcohol is 45.0 mL

#### Explanation:

We're going to use the formula below to find the volume:

- I should mention that when you are talking about liquids, the volume will be expressed in terms of milliliters (mL). For solids, the volume will be expressed in cubic meters (
#cm^3# ).

We are given the density and mass of ethyl alcohol; so all we have to do is rearrange the equation to solve for the volume:

Plug in your known values:

Therefore, the volume is 45.0mL
