An empty flash has a mass of 123.4g. When the flask is filled with water, the mass is 211.6g. If 10.0g of zinc (d=7.14g/cm^3) is added to the flask filled with water (and the sides of the flask are dried from the displaced water), what is the new mass of the flask?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So here is a start. Calculate the mass of water. 211123 = mass of water. Use density to convert this mass to volume. => ml of flask Now you have the volume of the flask. Now you add 10 g of Zn. Calculate the volume of that zinc, from density of Zn. Water overflows. Amount of water displaced = volume of zinc. COnvert that to g and you will get the mass of water displaced. Subtract this mass from the total mass before addition of Zinc (211)+10 mass of displaced water.
