Question #1546

An engineer weighs a sample of mercury (ρ =

13.6 × 103 kg/m3) and finds that the weight

of the sample is 5.6 N.

What is the sample’s volume?

13.6 × 103 kg/m3) and finds that the weight

of the sample is 5.6 N.

What is the sample’s volume?

Expert's answer

The mass of the sample is m = W/g = 5.6 [N]/9.8[N/kg] = 0.57 kg.

The volume is V = m/ρ = 0.57[kg]/13.6x103[kg/m^{3}] = 4.2x10^{-5} m^{3}.

The volume is V = m/ρ = 0.57[kg]/13.6x103[kg/m
