  • Hope this helps you.
  • Answer: The mass of acetone is 22.61 g

    Explanation:

    To calculate mass of a substance, we use the equation:

    [tex]\text{Density of substance}=\frac{\text{Mass of substance}}{\text{Volume of substance}}[/tex]

    We are given:

    Density of acetone = [tex]0.7857g/cm^3[/tex]

    Volume of acetone = [tex]28.78mL=28.78cm^3[/tex]     (Conversion factor: [tex]1cm^3=1mL[/tex]  )

    Putting values in above equation, we get:

    [tex]0.7857g/cm^3=\frac{\text{Mass of acetone}}{28.78cm^3}\\\\\text{Mass of acetone}=22.61g[/tex]

    Hence, the mass of acetone is 22.61 g
