Shown below is a table of standard relationships.

One cubic foot 62.4 pounds (Density of Water)
One gallon 8 pounds (Weight of Water) One gallon 128 ounces One inch 2.54 centimeters One cubic meter 1,000,000 cubic centimeters One cubic foot 1728 cubic inches

Your problem is to compare the
**fluid volumes** of jet fuel (a liquid) and air (a gas). To solve
the problem, use the density of both air and jet fuel. Jet fuel
weighs approximately 62.5% of the weight of water. The density of the
air changes with altitude. At sea level, the density of air is 1.222
kilograms per cubic meter. __Show your work__ and record your
answers in the spaces shown below:

1. Find the volume of the air.

2. Find the volume of the jet fuel.

3. What is the ratio of the volume of fuel/volume of air?
