Q:
# The specific gravity of a substance is the ratio of its weight to the weight of an equal volume of water. Kerosene weighs 0.82 gram per cubic centimeter and water weighs 1 gram per cubic centimeter. What is the specific gravity of kerosene?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The specific gravity of kerosene is 0.82Step-by-step explanation:Letx -----> the weight in grams of a cubic centimeter of Keroseney ----> the weight in grams of a cubic centimeter of waterz ---> the specific gravity of a substanceso[tex]z=\frac{x}{y}[/tex]we have[tex]x=0.82\ g\\y=1\ g[/tex]substitute the values[tex]z=\frac{0.82}{1}=0.82[/tex]
