The specific gravity of gasoline is approximately 0.70.

(a) Determine the mass (kg) of 50.00 liters of gasoline.

(b) The mass flow rate of gasoline exiting a refinery tank is 1150kg/min. Estimate the volumetric flow rate in liters/s.

(c) Estimate the average mass flow rate (lbm/min) delivered by a gasoline pump.

(d) Gasoline and kerosene (specific gravity = 0.82) are blended to obtain a mixture with a specific gravity of 0.78. Calculate the volumetric ratio (volume of gasoline/volume of kerosene) of the two compounds in the mixtures, assuming V blend = V gasoline + V kerosene.
