Problem 1.47 [Difficulty: 3] Given: Soda can with estimated dimensions D = 66.0 ± 0.5 mm, H = 110 ± 0.5 mm. Soda has SG = 1.055 Find: Volume of soda in the can (based on measured mass of full and empty can); Estimate average depth to which the can is filled and the uncertainty in the estimate. Solution: Measurements on a can of coke give m g, m g m m m u g f e f e m = ± = ± = = ± 3865 050 17 5 050 369 . . . . 2 1 2 2 + = e f m e e m f f m u m m m m u m m m m u u 0.5 g 386.5 g u m m f e = ± = ± = ± = 0 00129 050 17 5 0 0286 . , . . . 0019 . 0 0286 . 0 1 369 5 . 17 00129 . 0 1 369 5 . 386 2 1 2 2 ± = × × + × × ± = m u Density is mass per unit volume and SG = ρ / ρΗ 2 Ο so ∀ = = = × × × = × m m H O SG g m kg kg 1000 g m 2 ρ ρ 369 1000 1 1055 350 10 3 6 3 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
