Problem 111P

The mass of fuel in an airplane must be determined before takeoff. If a 747 contains 155,211 L of fuel, what is the mass of the fuel in kilograms? Assume the density of the fuel to be 0.768 g/cm3.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 2

Solution 111P :

Given :

Density of fuel =  0.768 g/cm3.

Volume of fuel = 155,211 L

Mass of fuel in Kg = ?

Mass of fuel is :

= Volume of fuel density of fuel.

Here the volume of fuel is in L and density is in g/cm3. So,let’s convert the volume in L to cm3:

1 L = 1000 cm3

Therefore,155,211 L in cm3 is  : = 155211000 cm3.
