Solution Summary

The answer addresses the relationship between the density of water, when it is both charged and discharged. By noting that the change in density is given by the change in specific gravity, the change in density of the fluid is determined, when the battery is run down.

Solution Preview

Since the density of water is 1 g/cm^3, the density of the fluid, when it is fully charged, is 1.3*1=1.3 g/cm^3. The density of ...
