Eighty-six proof whiskey is 43 percent ethyl alcohol, CH_{3}CH_{2}OH, by volume. If the density of ethyl alcohol is 0.79 kg/L, what is the molarity in whiskey.

2. Relevant equations

Molar Mass of CH_{3}CH_{2}OH = 46.07 g

3. The attempt at a solution

0.79 kg/L * 1000 g/kg * 1 mole / 46.07 g = 17.15 M

I was just looking for a check on this particular problem since I haven't taken a chemistry course since my freshman year ha!
