Answer:Average Density = 1.07 g/cm³

Explanation:The average density of the whole mixture is given by the following formula:

where,

volume of whole mixture = volume of water + volume of acid

volume of whole mixture = 100 cm³ + 50 cm³ = 150cm³

mass of whole mixture = mass of water + mass of acid

mass of whole mixture = (volume of water)(density of water) + (volume of acid)(density of acid)

mass of whole mixture = (100 cm³)(1 g/cm³) + (50 cm³)(1.2 g/cm³)

mass of whole mixture = 160 g

Therefore,

Average Density = 1.07 g/cm³
