Question

A syrup is added to an empty container with a mass of 102.80 when 0.114 is added, the total mass of the container and syrup is 162.43. How can I solve to find the density?

I know the formula is D=m/v (Density= mass/volume), and I also know that because the volume is displace I would have to subtract, but my problem is setting the problem up to solve. I've tried subtracting the following: 162.43-0.114 and dividing the sum with the grams of 102.80 and that was wrong. I tried diving mass from volume (102.80/0.114 and 162.43/0.114) and all answers was wrong. Please help. Thanks, Jennifer

  • Hey Jennifer! The 0.114 that was added to the container, what units is it in? Dasha commented over 3 years ago
