Problem

More sulfuric acid (density = 1.8302 g/cm3) is produced than any other chemical-approximately 3.6 x 1011 lb/yr worldwide.

What is the volume of this amount in liters?

Solution

Density of a substance is a quantity that relates its mass to the volume that it occupies.

It is defined as:


<math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"><menclose mathcolor="#0000FF" notation="box"><mi>d</mi><mi>e</mi><mi>n</mi><mi>s</mi><mi>i</mi><mi>t</mi><mi>y</mi><mo>&#xA0;</mo><mo>=</mo><mfrac><mrow><mo>&#xA0;</mo><mi>m</mi><mi>a</mi><mi>s</mi><mi>s</mi></mrow><mrow><mi>v</mi><mi>o</mi><mi>l</mi><mi>u</mi><mi>m</mi><mi>e</mi></mrow></mfrac></menclose></math>


We can interconvert between mass and volume using density.
