Answers

  1. The mass of the sample should be reported as 3.54 g
    The amount of matter in an object is expressed in terms of mass.
    The most frequent way to determine mass is to weigh something.
    The units of mass are grams, kilograms, tonnes (in metric units), or ounces and pounds (US units).
    According to the question,
    A label on an empty sample container reads 10.000 g
    A sample of a compound is added and the mass of the sample container is found to be 13.54 g.
    The mass of the sample should thus be reported as,
    = 13.54 – 10.000
    = 3.54 g
