Dear Snaktalk,

Can you please answer the questions on distilled ethyl alcohol & distilled water, shown below:

1. At temperature 60 F, with a liquid compromising 50.000% weight distilled ethyl alcohol and 50.000% weight distilled water:

(a) What is the liquid's specific gravity? (Compared to the equivalent volume of distilled water.)

(b) What is the liquid's percentage (to 00.000%) volume of distilled ethyl alcohol?

(c) What is the liquid's percentage (to 00.000% volume of distilled water?

(d) And taking that liquid of distilled ethyl alcohol & distilled water as 100.000 parts volume, how many separate parts volume of distilled ethyl alcohol does it take to make up the liquid? (Distilled ethyl alcohol DOES NOT contract upon mixture with distilled water.)

(e) And taking that liquid of distilled ethyl alcohol & distilled water as 100.000 parts volume, how many separate parts volume of distilled water does it take to make up the liquid? (Distilled water DOES contract upon mixture with distilled ethyl alcohol.)

2. At temperature 60 F, with a liquid compromising 50.000% volume of distilled ethyl alcohol and 50.000% volume distilled water:

(a) What is the liquid's specific gravity? (Compared to the equivalent volume of distilled water.)

(b) What is the liquid's percentage (to 00.000%) weight of distilled ethyl alcohol?

(c) What is the liquid's percentage (to 00.000%) weight of distilled water?

(d) And taking that liquid of distilled ethyl alcohol & distilled water as 100.000 parts volume, how many separate parts volume of distilled ethyl alcohol does it take to make up the liquid? (Distilled ethyl alcohol DOES NOT contract upon mixture with distilled water.)

(e) And taking that liquid of distilled ethyl alcohol & distilled water as 100.000 parts volume, how many separate parts volume of distilled water does it take to make up the liquid?
(Distilled water DOES contract upon mixture with distilled ethyl alcohol.)

3. At temperature 51 F, with a liquid compromising a mixture of distilled ethyl alcohol and distilled water at 0.9230769 (or 12/13) specific gravity (compared to the equivalent volume of distilled water):

(a) What is the liquid's percentage (to 00.000%) weight of distilled ethyl alcohol?

(b) What is the liquid's percentage (to 00.000%) weight of distilled water?

(c) What is the liquid's percentage (to 00.000%) volume of distilled ethyl alcohol?

(d) What is the liquid's percentage (to 00.000%) volume of distilled water?

(e) And taking that liquid of distilled ethyl alcohol & distilled water as 100.000 parts volume, how many separate parts volume of distilled ethyl alcohol does it take to make up the liquid? (Distilled ethyl alcohol DOES NOT contract upon mixture with distilled water.)

(f) And taking that liquid of distilled ethyl alcohol & distilled water as 100.000 parts volume, how many separate parts volume of distilled water does it take to make up the liquid? (Distilled water DOES contract upon mixture with distilled ethyl alcohol.)

Thanks,
