What is the volume of 80.0 g of ether if the density of ether is 0.70 g/mL?

The ether has a volume of $114 m L .$

Explanation:

In order to determine the density, we have to use the following formula:

$D = \frac{M}{V}$

• D represents density and it will have units of $\frac{g}{m L}$ when talking about a liquid or units of $\frac{g}{c {m}^{3}}$ when talking about a solid.
• M represents mass and will have units of grams $g$.
• V represents volume and it will have units of $m L$ or $c {m}^{3}$

We know the mass and density, both of which have good units so all we have to do is rearrange the equation to solve for V.

$V = \frac{M}{D}$

V = (80.0cancel"g")/(0.70cancel"g"/(mL)

$V = 114 m L$
