# Physics question help? watch

1. A measuring cylinder contains 80cm3 of a particular liquid. The liquid is poured into an empty beaker of mass 48g. The total mass of the beaker and the liquid was found to be 136g.

A) Calculate the mass of liquid in g.

B) Calculate the density of the liquid in g/cm3.

Thanks!

The mass of the liquid would be calculated by doing the total mass subtract the beaker's mass. So 136g - 48g = 88g.
Then to calculate density, you do mass/volume.
88/80 = 1.1 g/cm^3
