Yes, I agree with you on this solution (pun!).  However, I think it means
that the measuring cup would need to be filled with the chemical solution.
If most people are like me (and maybe that's stretching things a bit) they
use their kitchen glass Pyrex measuring cup.  So I would prefer to just add
the compound to the water so that only tap water ever touches the cup.
Otherwise, every chemical I mix would need to be poured into the cup to
measure the correct final volume.

Does that make sense?  Maybe I should just go out and buy another measuring

Anyway I think that people would rather mix a chemical into a given amount
of water than to mix it with less water and then have to bring the volume up
to the required amount, as this would require re-measuring the mixed water.

If the densities at the Merck site are the ones I need then its no problem
changing the calculation.
