Chemistry (7th Edition)

1. Convert the melting point to celsius. $302.91 - 273.15 = 29.76$ $^{\circ}C$ 2. Now, calculate this value in Fahrenheint. $^{\circ}F = (\frac{9^{\circ}F }{5^{\circ}C} \times 29.76 ^{\circ}C) + 32^{\circ}F = 85.6$ $^{\circ}F$ Since the cargo compartment has a greater temperature than the melting point for gallium, it will be in the liquid state.
