(0.500g)(1000mg/1g)(1grain/60mg) = 8.33grain

(200cm3)(1M3/1 X 106cm3) = 2 X 10-4M3 and (0.5nm)(1M/1 X 109nm) = 5 X 10-10M
Remember that we treat units just as we do numbers. The only way to get meters squared is to divide:
2 X 10-4M3/5 X 10-10M = 4 X 105 M3-1 = 400000M2

a. C = (162 – 32)/1.8 = 72.2C
b. 0.0F = -17.8C, K = -17.8 + 273 = 255 and to one sig fig the answer is 300K
c. F = 1.8(-18) + 32 = -0.40F
d. 212 = 273 + C, C = 212 – 273 = -61.0
47.
F = 1.8C + 32. This is a single equation with 2 unknowns, the F and C. However, this question says they
are equal, so F = C, and we can call them both X.
X = 1.8X + 32. Subtract 1.8X from both sides to get, -0.8X = 32, and dividing both sides by -0.8x we find
that the answer is -40. When F = -40, C will also = -40, or when C = -40 so will F.

4.0in = 1/3ft and 2.5ft X 1/3ft = 0.833ft2 the area of each line.
(15gal)(4qt/1gal)(43ft2/1qt)(1dashed line/0.833ft2) = 3100 dashed lines

(2 X 104L/day)(1000cm3/1L)(1M3/1 X 106cm3)(180&micro;g Hg/1M3) = about 4000&micro;g Hg/day. Can you say Hg
Poisoning boys and girls!

(695g)(12oz/373g)(480gr/1oz)(1scruple/20gr) = 537 scruples

125.934g = the mass of everything. From this we subtract the mass of the metal and cylinder to get:
125.934 – 15.454 – 89.450 = 21.030g, which is the mass of the liquid.
Density of liquid = 21.030g/25.0ml = 0.841g/ml
Density of metal = 15.454g/5.7ml = 2.7g/ml
