I need help with a chemistry problem
« Reply #25 on: 16/09/2008 22:48:53 »
Okay, so I finally went to Chemistry class and the professor told me that the density of seawater was indeed needed as R/D stated.  So the density of seawater was given in the problem prior to this one.  You guys are really good!  I mean, you also got the questions correct without mostly giving the density of seawater which was  1.03g/mL.

Just to let you know tomorrow is my big day, my first chemistry examen and my first lab examen.  Thank you to all of you that helped me. 

My heroes =  RD, Bored Chemist, Lightarrow.

the density of seawater which was  1.03g/mL.

Using 1.03g/ml for the density of seawater then multiply by 1/1.03 = 0.971 to convert kilograms of seawater to litres of seawater.

(ignore the conversion factor of 0.975 which I gave in my previous post which was based on density 1.025g/ml)
