Problem 112

A backpacker carries 2.5 L of white gas as fuel for her stove. How many pounds does the fuel add to her load? Assume the density of white gas to be 0.79 g/cnr5.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 2

Solution 112 :

Given :

        Volume of gas = 2.5 L

        Density of gas = 0.79 g.cm3.

fuel added to load in pounds(lb) = ?

 Mass of fuel is :

        = Volume of fueldensity 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,2.5 L in cm3 is  :

        

                 = 2500 cm3.
