Problem: Benzoic acid, C6H5COOH, melts at 122 oC. The density in the liquid state at 130 oC is 1.08 g/cm3. The density of solid benzoic acid at 15 oC is 1.266 g/cm3.If you converted a cubic centimeter of liquid benzoic acid into a solid, would the solid take up more or less volume than the original cubic centimeter of liquid?
