SAT Math: Using Conversion Factors to Solve for Density in Moles

A mole is a unit used in chemistry to measure atoms, molecules, electrons, and other particles in a given amount of substance. We know that the molar mass of mercury is approximately 200 grams per mole. Using a small calibrated test tube containing water, a scientist is able to determine that the volume of a small amount of mercury that he will use in his experiment is 24.5 cubic centimeters. If mercury has a density of 13.5 grams per cubic centimeter, how many moles of mercury are in 24.5 cubic centimeters? Round your answer to one decimal place.
