Explanation:

Volume of fresh water:

Volume = Mass / Density

Volume = 1600/1

= 1600 cm³

Volume of sea water:

Volume = Mass / Density

Volume = 1200/1.2

Volume = 1000 cm³

So,

Total Volume when they are mixed = 1600+1000

Total Volume when they are mixed = 2600 cm³

And,

Total Mass when they are mixed = 1600+1200

Total Mass when they are mixed = 2800 g

Now, Measuring the density of the mixture:

Density = Mass / Volume

Density = 2800/2600

Density = 1.1 g/cm³

Explanation:

Volume of fresh water ⇒ 1600 cm³

Density of fresh water ⇒ 1 g/cm³

Volume of sea water ⇒ 1200 cm³

Density of sea water ⇒ 1.2 g/cm³

Calculate mass of fresh water.

Calculate the mass of sea water.

Find the density of the mixture.
