Problem: An empty beaker weighs 42.15 g.a) When completely filed with water, the beaker and its contents have a total mass of 317.75 g. What volume (mL) does the beaker hold? Use d = 1.00 g/mL as the density of water.b) How much (g) would the beaker and its contents weigh if it was completely filled with mercury? The density of mercury is d = 13.5 g/mL.
