Int this case, we know the length, depth, and width of the tank, which makes it possible to calculate the volume of tank=90*60*9=48600m^3. The concentration of Hg is also provided. However, be sure to convert the volume into Liters. Keep in mind that 10L=1m^3. So the volume of the tank is 4.86*10^5L. Multiply the concentration of the Hg with the volume in Liters, you will get the mass of Hg. Since the question is asking mass in kg, you have to convert the mass from mg to kg. FYI, 1kg=10^3g=10^6mg.

thats confusing still i dont get how you find the answer in units of kg

good
