Question #54432

The mass of a jar of beans is 525 g. If the jar has a mass of 25 g, what is the mass of the beans alone?

Expert's answer

If the total mass consists of the mass of beams and the mass of the jar:

m(total) = m(beams) + m(jar)

Therefore, the mass of beams alone equals:

m(beams) = m(total) – m (jar) = 525 g – 25 g = 500 g

m(total) = m(beams) + m(jar)

Therefore, the mass of beams alone equals:

m(beams) = m(total) – m (jar) = 525 g – 25 g = 500 g
