OK, i'm having a terrible time in chemistry because of these darn 
conversion factors.  Everything we are doing now i am confused at because 
i don't quite understand conversion factors.  A problem such as this: What 
is the volume in cubic centimeters, of a sample of cough syrup thath has a 
mass of 50.0 grams? The density of cough syrup is 0.950g/cm cubed. All 
these word problems are confusing me.  Also Dimendional Analysis.  I have 
problems by not knowing how to get the equation.  Could you help me with 
that as well?  Thank you much.
