The average density of human blood is 1.06 g/ml. what is the mass of blood in an adult with a blood volume of 5.5l? express your answer in (a) grams & (b) ounces.

Answers

1.06 times 5.5 will be in grams
5.5L= 5500ml
5500*1.06g/ml=5830g
5803g*0.035274oz/g=205.6oz

Answer : The mass of human blood in grams and ounce are 5830 grams and 205.647 ounce.

Explanation :

Density : It is defined as the mass contained per unit volume.

Formula used for density :

Density=frac{Mass}{Volume}

Given :

Density of human blood = 1.06 g/mL

Volume of human blood = 5.5 L = 5500 mL

conversion used : 1 L = 1000 mL

Now put all the given values in the above formula, we get the mass of human blood.

1.06g/mL=frac{Mass}{5500mL}

Mass=5830g

The mass of human blood in grams = 5830 grams

Conversion used :

1text{ ounce}=28.3495g\\1g=frac{1}{28.3495}text{ ounce}

As, 1g=frac{1}{28.3495}text{ ounce}

So, 5830g=frac{5830g}{1g}times frac{1}{28.3495}text{ ounce}=205.647text{ ounce}

Therefore, the mass of human blood in grams and ounce are 5830 grams and 205.647 ounce.
