If the mass of liquid in a cubical container 5 cm on a side is 375 g, find the mass of the liquid in a cubical container 3 cm on a side?Answer by stanbon(57361)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!the mass m of liquid varies directly as its volume V. --- m = kV ---- Solve for "k" using "If the mass of liquid in a cubical container 5 cm on a side is 375 g". --- 375 = k*5^3 --- k = 3 --------- Equation: m = 3V --- Find the mass of the liquid in a cubical container 3 cm on a side? m = 3*3^3 = 81 g ====================== Cheers, Stan H. ----------------------
