- Homework Statement
- Here's the question:

A 35mL vial of a liquid substance was dropped and broke. The liquid vaporized very quickly. If the room is 7.0 x 3.2 x 2.3 meters, would the people inside be in danger given the density of the liquid is 3.12 g/mL and the TLV is 0.66 mg/cubic meter?

- Relevant Equations
- Not sure what the forum wants me to put here, since this is my first time posting, but no equations are directly given (but the density and volume formulas seem to be needed).

I'm getting 2119.36 for the concentration of mg/cubic meter of this substance...it just feels wrong though.

Steps I followed:

First, I figured out how many grams of the substance there were using the density formula, then saw how many were present per cubic meter after calculating the volume of the room. The ratio is WAY more than what was given. All conversions were done as needed.
