What is the density of sulfuric acid if 35.4 mL of the acid weighs 65.14 g?

Aug 15, 2016

$1.84 \frac{g}{m L}$

Explanation:

To calculate the density of the object, we have to use the following formula:

- Density will have units of $\frac{g}{m L}$ when dealing with a liquid or units of $\frac{g}{c {m}^{3}}$ when dealing with a solid.

• The mass has units of grams, $g$.

• The volume will have units of $m L$ or $c {m}^{3}$

We are given the mass and the volume, both of which have good units, so all we have to do is plug the given values into the equation:

$D e n s i t y = \frac{65.14 g}{35.4 m L}$

Thus, the object has a density of 1.84 g/mL.
