Problem 38PE

Find the density of a fluid in which a hydrometer having a density of 0.750 g/mL floats with 92.0% of its volume submerged.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 38PE

Step 1 of 3</p>

We need to calculate the density of the fluid in which the hydrometer has density of which floats with 92% of its volume submerged.

Given data,

Hydrometer density,

Using

Fraction submersed,

                                                

To find,

Density of fluid,

Step 2 of 3</p>

The hydrometer is an instrument which measures the specific gravity or relative density of liquids. In other words, it gives the ratio of density of liquid to density of water. Here the fraction submersed is given by,

 

Solving for ,
