A tank in the shape of a rectangular prism measures 5 dm by 2 dm by 23 dm. The tank is completely filled with 8314.5 L of liquid.

 

What is the density of the liquid?

Density   =  Mass of Liquid / Volume of tank

 

The problem here is that the liquid isn't identified.....so.....determining its mass is impossible

 

However...assuming that we have water.....its mass is almost exactly 1kg  per L

 

So   8314.5 L   ≈  8314.5 kg

 

So.....the density  is

 

 

8314.5 kg  /  [ 5 * 2 * 23 ] dm^3   ≈   8314.5 kg / 230 dm^3   ≈  36.15 kg / dm^3
