Answer:

The ether has a volume of #114 mL.#

Explanation:

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

#D=M/V#

  • D represents density and it will have units of #g/(mL)# when talking about a liquid or units of #g/(cm^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 #mL# or #cm^(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= M/D#

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

#V =114 mL#
