An aircraft is refueled with 173 liters of fuel. The specific gravity for the fuel is 0.72. How much does the weight of the aircraft increase?
  • A
    99 lb
  • B
    192 lb
  • C
    219 lb
    ​​​​​​​
  • D
    275 lb
Conversion between Fuel volume and mass: Fuel volume in litres x Specific Gravity (density) = Fuel Mass in Kg
  • 173 litres x 0.72 = 124.56 kg
Kilograms (kg) to Pounds (Lbs) => Lbs = Kilograms x 2.205
  • 124.56 kg x 2.205 = 275 lb
