# Problem: Chloroform, a substance once used as an anesthetic, has a density of 1.483 g/mL at 20 oC.How many milliliters would you use if you needed 8.03 g ?

###### FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the volume (in mL) of chloroform given that mass needed 8.03 g and its density is 1.48 g/mL.

Recall that density is the ratio of the mass and volume of an object:

$\overline{){\mathbf{density}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{mass}}{\mathbf{volume}}}$
