50 at 20 degrees celcius.

At a temperature of 20 deg Celsius (not celcius) and at a pressure of 1 atmosphere, the density of water is 998.2071 kilograms per cubic metre = 0.998 207 1 grams per millilitre.
So the mass of 50 millilitres of pure idle, under those conditions, is 49.91 grams, NOT 50.
Pure water attains its maximum density, of 999.9720 kg/m3 at 4 degrees Celsius. At normal pressure, the density neverreaches the value 1.
