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
In order to determine the density, we have to use the following formula:
- 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
- V represents volume and it will have units of
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.
