Homework Help: Volume of Sulphuric Acid (Mass Percent)

  1. Sep 16, 2010 #1
    The Density of a solution of sulphuric acid is 1.8022g/cc, and it is 88.00 percent by mass. What volume of the solution (in milliliters) do you need to supply 43.0 g of sulphuric acid?

    I'm not too sure how to solve this question, I tried it and thought it was too simple? This is what I did, if it is wrong or if there's a better way of doing it can you please help me :)

    1 ml = 1 cc
    43.0 g/1.8022 g/cc = 23.9 ml.
    23.9ml/0.88 = 27.15 ml
    answer 27.15 ml???
