I am studying for a general chemistry test with Atkins and Jones "Principles of Chemistry" 5th edition.
In the Chapter 18, page 743, section 18.3, there is this funny question:
How would you estimate the area that 1 litre of gasoline would spread above the water surface?
Observation: I translated it from the Brazilian Portuguese edition. The English version may have different units, but the idea should be the same.
Let's say that the water body is the sea. But it could be a big lagoon, too. It doesn't really matter.
It got me thinking and now I'm stuck. How can we do that?
