The density of ethyl alcohol is 0.789 g/mL . What is the volume of 35.5 g of eythl alchol?
The volume of ethyl alcohol is 45.0 mL
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 (
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
