#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

As you know, a substance's **density** tells you the mass of **one unit of volume** of that substance.

In your case, the density of sulfuric acid is given to you in *grams per milliliter*, **unit of volume** here will be

So, you know that **every**

#171 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g"))) * overbrace("1 mL"/(1.84 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g")))))^(color(purple)("density")) = color(green)("93.0 mL")#

The answer is rounded to three **sig figs**.
