Answer to Question #3296 in Molecular Physics | Thermodynamics for fowzan
The density of mercury is 13.6grams per centimetres cubed. Find the volume of 2720grams of mercury in centimetres cubed and metres cubed
The volume of the mercury can be calculated be the formula
V = m/ ρ
V = 2720 [g] / 13.6 g/cm3 = 200 cm3
In one cubic meter there are 106 cm3, therefore 200 cm3 = 200/106 m3 = 2 x 10 -4 m3.
