can concentrations in water tell us? (Continued)

Now that wasn't so hard, was it?

Here's another way to look at concentration:
If we put the same amount of Cherry Kool-Aid in an unknown amount
of water (for example, a fish tank) and mixed the Kool-Aid
into solution, how could we know the volume of the water in
the fish tank? To find that out, you could take a small sample
of the solution and measure the concentration of the red dye.
Then you could use the formula
v = m / c to calculate the amount of water in the fish tank.
Since c = m / v,
then c * v = m
and v = m / c
you measure the concentration (c) of the Red Dye #40 to be 0.17
mg/L, what would the volume of the fish tank be?
