Answer:

The mass of the fluid is 72 g.

Explanation:

The following data were obtained from the question:

Height (h) = 10 cm

Area of cross section (A) = 36cm²

Relative density = 0.2

Mass =..?

Next, we shall determine the volume of the cylinder. This can be achieved by doing the following:

Volume = Area x Height

Volume = 36 x 10

Volume = 360 cm³

Next, we shall determine the density of the liquid.

This can be obtained as follow:

Relative density = density of substance/density of water.

Relative density = 0.2

Density of water = 1 g/cm³

Density of fluid =...?

Relative density = density of substance/density of water.

0.2 = density of fluid / 1 g/cm³

Cross multiply

Density of fluid = 0.2 x 1 g/cm³

Density of fluid = 0.2 g/cm³

Finally, we shall determine the mass of fluid as follow:

Volume = 360 cm³

Density of fluid = 0.2 g/cm³

Mass of fluid =...?

Density = mass /volume.

0.2 g/cm³ = mass of fluid /360 cm³

Cross multiply

Mass of fluid = 0.2 g/cm³ x 360 cm³

Mass of fluid = 72 g

Therefore, the mass of the fluid in the jar is 72 g.
