Density is the measurement of the amount of mass per unit volume. Density calculations are done using the formula:
ρ = density
m = mass
V = volume
1. Calculate the density in g/mL of 30 mL of solution that weighs 120 grams.
2. Calculate the density in g/mL of 0.4 L of solution weighing 150 grams.
3. Calculate the density in g/mL of 3000 mL of solution weighing 6 kg.
density = 4 g/mL
We want to know the density in g/mL, but our volume is in liters. First, convert the volume to mL.
V= 400 mL
Now we can calculate the density
ρ = 0.375 g/mL
Again, we want g/mL, and our mass is in kg. Convert the mass to grams.
m = 6000 grams
ρ = 2 g/mL
