# How to Calculate Density of a Solution

## What is the density of the solution in the given scenario?

Calculate the density of the solution based on the provided data.

## Density Calculation:

The density of the solution will be 1.0563 g/mL.

In the scenario provided, the student weighs an empty 100 mL volumetric flask and stopper and finds the mass to be 98.595g. After adding sugar to the flask, he reweighs the flask and sugar and finds the mass to be 102.758g. The student then adds water to the flask, dissolving the sugar, and the mass is now 204.274g.

To calculate the density of the solution, we can use the formula: Density = mass / volume.

Total mass calculated = 204.274g - 98.595g = 105.679 grams.

Total volume given = 100mL.

Therefore, the density of the solution is 105.679g / 100mL = 1.0563 g/mL.

The mass of a substance per unit of volume is its density. Density is mathematically defined as mass divided by volume, where D denotes density, m denotes mass, and V denotes volume. Differences in density can cause objects of the same size but different materials to have different weights when compared.
