Question #3296

The density of mercury is 13.6grams per centimetres cubed. Find the volume of 2720grams of mercury in centimetres cubed and metres cubed

Expert's answer

The volume of the mercury can be calculated be the formula

V = m/ ρ

V = 2720 [g] / 13.6 g/cm^{3} = 200 cm^{3}

In one cubic meter there are 10^{6 }cm^{3}, therefore 200 cm^{3} = 200/10^{6} m^{3} = 2 x 10^{ -4} m^{3}.

V = m/ ρ

V = 2720 [g] / 13.6 g/cm

In one cubic meter there are 10
