Problem: After the label fell off a bottle containing a clear liquid believed to be benzene, a chemist measured the density of the liquid to verify its identity. A 25.0-mL portion of the liquid had a mass of 21.95 g. A chemistry handbook lists the density of benzene at 15 °C as 0.8787 g/ mL.Is the calculated density in agreement with the tabulated value?

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Wu's class at OSU.
