Report

Mercury is commonly supplied in flasks containing 34.5 $\mathrm{kg}$(about 76 $\mathrm{lb}$ ). What is the volume in liters of this muchmercury?

$V_{\mathrm{M}}=2.54 \mathrm{L}$

In physics, a fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gases, plasmas and, to some extent, plastic solids.

A fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gases and plasmas. Fluids display properties such as flow, pressure, and tension, which can be described with a fluid model. For example, liquids form a surface which exerts a force on other objects in contact with it, and is the basis for the forces of capillarity and cohesion. Fluids are a continuum (or "continuous" in some sense) which means that they cannot be strictly separated into separate pieces. However, there are theoretical limits to the divisibility of fluids. Fluids are in contrast to solids, which are able to sustain a shear stress with no tendency to continue deforming.

here. The density is going to be equal to the mass over the volume. And so we can say that the volume would be simply equal, be mass over the density. And so this would be the mass of 34,505 100 grams divided by 13.6 grams per cubic centimeter. And so the volume is found to be 2.5 37 times 10 to the third cubic centimeters and there are 1000 cubic centimeters for every leader. So the volume of mercury would be equaling two, approximately 2.54 leaders. This would be our volume. That is the end of the solution. Thank you for watching.
