Question

Two miscible fluids of densities 1.2 gm/cm3 and 1.4 gm/cm3 are mixed with a proportion of their volumes equal to 3: 5. Assuming both fluids to be perfectly miscible, what is the density of resulting liquid?

A

0.325 gm/cm3

B

1.325 gm/cm3

C

1.3 gm/cm3

D

2.425 gm/cm3

Solution

The correct option is B 1.325 gm/cm3Given : Density of liquid 1 = ρ1 = 1.2 gm/cm3              Density of liquid 2 = ρ2 = 1.4 gm/cm3 Let's say that the first liquid has a volume = 3v and second liquid has a volume = 5v From above we can say that Liquid 1 has mass = ρ1×3v and liquid 2 has mass = ρ1×5v in the mixture. From definition, ⇒So, density of resulting mixture = (1.2×3)+(1.4×5)8                                                       = 1.325gm/cm3 Physics
