Hi gang.

What is the formula for converting Pounds to Liters?

Q: A Fish net weighs 5000 lbs dry. It is dipped in a pool of paint and
when dried again, weighs 7000 lbs. The cost of Paint is \$10 per liter.

A: ?.....ahhhhhhh

Hi,
There is not enough information provided in the question for anyone
to answer it. If this is not the first question of a set of questions,
the information should be in the previous questions. Otherwise, you
would need to determine how much is mass is lost when the paint dries
(like from 10 lbs to 1 lb), the density of the paint (lbs/gal or
kg/L), or the volume of paint in the pool (since it is unlikely that
the paint can be used again).
The question that comes to my mind is 'why would anyone paint a fish
net?'

If you'll consider paint having similar density of
water, then 1 gram of paint = 1 milliliter. So from
this, basically 1 kilogram of paint is the mass of 1
liter of paint. So you'll just need to convert pounds
to kilograms, and the answer should be equal to the
volume of paint in liters. Heres a useful link:
