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:

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

Chloroform, a substance once used as an anesthetic, has a density of 1.483 g/mL at 20 ^{o}C.

How many milliliters would you use if you needed 8.03 g ?
