Calculations: Volume, Density, Mass, Efficiency, Conversions

1. Calculate the volume of 235.1 g of mercury (D=13.5g/cm3). Round to one decimal place, do not include units in your answer.

2. The empty cylinder has a mass of 45.8 g. A liquid is added and the mass of the liquid and the cylinder is 107.2. What is the density of the liquid in the cylinder? Round to one decimal place; do not include units in your answer.

3. A little aluminum boat (mass of 10.8 g) has a volume of 450.00 cm3. The boat is placed in a small pool of water and carefully filled with paper clips. If each paper clip has a mass of 2.1 g, how many paper clips can be added to the boat before it sinks? Round to the nearest whole number, do not include units in your answer.

4. An SUV gets 18.4mi/gal (miles per gallon), what is it's fuel efficiency in km/liter? Round to one decimal place, do not include units in your answer.

5. Convert 628.8 g to lbs. Round to one decimal place, do not include units.

Please see the attachment for word format and full equations.

1. Calculate the volume of 235.1 g of mercury (D=13.5g/cm3). Round to one decimal place, do not include units in your answer.
volume=mass/density, in this problem, mass=235.1g, density=13.5g/cm^3.
Based on these information, volume=235.1/13.5=17.4

2. The empty cylinder has a mass of 45.8 g. A liquid is added and the mass of the liquid and the cylinder is 107.2. What is the density of the liquid in the cylinder? Round to one decimal place; do not include units in your answer.
in this question, mass of liquid: 107.2-45.8=61.4
However, information about the volume of cylinder is needed before we could calculate the volume.

3. A little aluminum boat (mass of 10.8 g) has a ...
