(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A mass of a liquid of density ρ is thoroughly mixed with an equal mass of another liquid of density 2ρ. No change of the total volume occurs.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i tried to use ρ=[tex]\frac{m}{v}[/tex]

then v=[tex]\frac{m}{\rho}[/tex]

therefore v1+v2=V

[tex]\frac{m}{\rho}[/tex]+[tex]\frac{m}{2\rho}[/tex]=v

[tex]\frac{3m}{2\rho}[/tex]=V

[tex]\frac{3m}{2V}[/tex]=[tex]\rho1[/tex]

[tex]\rho1[/tex] \ [tex]\rho[/tex]

in the end i get [tex]\rho1[/tex] = [tex]\frac{3}{2}[/tex][tex]\rho[/tex]

but i was wrong couldnt find out the reason ><
