Please explain and include all steps as I want to make sure I totally understand. I will have additional paid questions and just want to find someone who can give detailed, clear answers.
7) A cylinder (4 cm diameter by 10 cm long) contains 210.0 g of oven-dry mineral soil. Estimate
the grams of water required to fully saturate the soil in the cylinder.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
this is a simple question buddy, firstly we get the volume of cylinder.
we then determine the particle density of the mineral from a chart or if given(you haven't given that)
next we establish the volume of the mineral with the relation (density=mass/volume)
we get the mineral volume and subtract from the cylinder volume.
since the density of water is 1g/cm3 the answer is this volume but in grams
