Mass in air of a solid and Density
« on: June 04, 2004, 05:05:58 PM »
Hi,

The question reads as: Calculate the mass in air of a solid which has a density of 8.5g/ml and weighs 25.0 g when completely immersed in a liquid with a specific gravity of 0.900.


IM not clear on how to do the problem, i read and reread my book numerous times...is it set up something like this or am i totally off

sp.gr.= d substance/ d water? Or is this ratio wrong. IM a little confused. thank you

Do you mean weight or mass? Because, technically mass shouldn't change.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
