🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Montgomery's class at Florida Southern College.

Solution: A small airplane takes on 281 L of fuel.If the density of the fuel is 0.821 g/mL, what mass of fuel has the airplane taken on?

Problem

A small airplane takes on 281 L of fuel.

If the density of the fuel is 0.821 g/mL, what mass of fuel has the airplane taken on?

Solution

We can calculate mass of the fuel by using its volume and density:

Volume (density)  Mass

Given values:

Volume = 281 L
Density = 0.821 g/mL


The volume in the density given is in mL and the volume given is in L. We will have to convert the volume from L to mL.
