What is the volume of a sample of helium that has a mass of 1.73 x 10^-3, given that the density is 0.17847 g/L.

The answer is apparently 9.69 mL, but I have no idea how that happened.

V= M/D

1.73 x 10^3 = .00173

.00173/0.17847 = approx. 9693 mL. However, taking into account that it was g/L, I assume you can move the decimal over, and, et viola!

Did that help at all?

What chemistry are you taking? So far we've only learned how to use bunsen burners to light sh*t on fire and how many subatomic particles are in certain atoms...

10th grade Honors chemistry. So far I hate it, it was a miserable first test on dimensional analysis.

Blah, I hated chemistry last year. Unfortunately physics is looking like it will be even worse.

Is honors like a step between normal and AP?

I think so. At the school I go there's Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, and then AP chemistry, but Honors and AP are weighed the same, and are both terrible.

It's the same way with Physics too.

But it might be different for other schools.

okay, my school did not have honors anything, only normal and AP.

I've always wondered the purpose of learning equations with little to no application to life. It is strange how we are supposed to memorize facts like the Calvin cycle and other random trivia, when most of us forget everything months later (I can't remember the equation for photosynthesis or the Calvin cycle or all the states and capitals)

hopefully some1s online.

What percent error would you expect when using a graduated cylinder to measure 5 mL of water, if you can read the graduated cylinder to 0.2 mL?

No way. Biology was way better than chemistry.

That was not my homework. That was practice for an upcoming test and lab on percent error, matter, significant figures, and dimensional analysis. This is a different class to what I'm used to for science, and so its quite difficult to understand it in these beginning stages. I'm used to biology, and so I come here because I know there are some members here that would be willing to help. If you are not going to help, but rather just troll here, then GTFO. I have extremely small tolerance for posts like the one you just wrote.

So, you start asking for uncompensated help, get into a hissy fit because nobody is willing to do it, and then lash out because you didn't get what you want? Just wow.

Actually, I didn't get mad until you commented, I was merely disappointed that no one replied. The comment you made about me asking people to do my homework for me is what pissed me off, and instead of apologizing, you make this douche bag reply still not contributing anything.

GTFO my thread you troll.

Apologize for what? I didn't do anything. You shouldn't expect people to help you. You shouldn't expect others to follow your little authoritarian regime and not post something that isn't the solution your looking for. Jeez, take a chill pill.

GTFO my thread you troll.

You don't own it. It's the property of Juggle. I have the right to post anything I want on this thread.
