An empty container with an unknown volume is weighed and found to have a mass of 94.7g. The container is then filled with a liquid with a density of 1.015 g/cm^3 and reweighed. The mass of the container and the liquid is 154.4g. Determine the volume of the container to the appropriate number of significant figures.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[Density=\frac{ mass }{ volume }\] What is the density of the liquid? What about its mass?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[Volume=\frac{ mass }{ density }\] Units should be in cm^3 because g/(g/cm^3) is cm^3 Dividing significant figure means the answer should have the least significant figures of the 3 original numbers. 94.7 has only 3 and the other two has 4, so the answer should have 3 significant figures.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nope 60.6cm^3 60.60 has 4 significant figure. The 6,0,6,0 makes it 4 We use 3 to be the significant figure because when dividing, you choose the one with the least significant figure in the problem. 94.7g would be the least.
