Question

# The egg whites from four "large" eggs occupy a volume of $112 \mathrm{~mL}$. The mass of the egg whites from these four eggs is $1.20 \times 10^2 \mathrm{~g}$. What is the average density of an egg white from one "large" egg?

1 of 3

For this problem, we solve for the average density of the egg white from one “large” egg given the following information:

Number of “large” eggs = 4 Volume occupied by the egg whites of four “large” eggs = 112 mL Mass of the egg whites from the four eggs = 1.20 $\times$ 10$^2$ g

Since we are given 4 “large” eggs, we must divide the calculated density by 4 to get the average density of the egg white from one “large” egg.
