Chemistry (including Biochemistry)/Mass of sugar dissolved in water

A slight alteration to Chad's calculation...

Sugar dissolves in water at a ratio of approximately 0.675cc/gram therefore 20 grams of sugar would in actual fact only occupy 13.5cc or mL so your final water solution would be 113.5mL. This, by calculation would give the water a density of 120/113.5 = 1.057gr/mL.
