3 L of water of density 1 gram per centimetre cubed is added to 12litres of alcohol of density of 0.8 gram per centimetre cubed,find the density of the mixture.

Answer:

84%

Step-by-step explanation:

each liter is 1000 cubic centimetre, so you have a total density of 3000, but instead think of 3 liters being 100% density and think of alcohol as 80% density, there are 4 times at much 80% than 100% liquid.

with 3 liters of alcohol, 3 liters of water is now 90% density or 0.9 gram per centimetre. add another 3 liters and it is 2/3, so the grams per centimetre would be 8.66667 or 8 2/3’s

Answer:84%

Step-by-step explanation:each liter is 1000 cubic centimetre, so you have a total density of 3000, but instead think of 3 liters being 100% density and think of alcohol as 80% density, there are 4 times at much 80% than 100% liquid.

with 3 liters of alcohol, 3 liters of water is now 90% density or 0.9 gram per centimetre. add another 3 liters and it is 2/3, so the grams per centimetre would be 8.66667 or 8 2/3’s

if you add another 3 liters, THEN it is 85%

add 12 liters in total and the final answer 84%
