I need help with two questions:
What is the volume, in cubic inches, of a gold nugget that has a mass of 82.00 ounces?
Density of Au = 19.3 g/cm3 ; 453.6 g = 1lb ; 16 ounces = 1lb 16.4 cm3 = in3
THEN second part:
Jim has a block of aluminum that has the same volume as the gold in question 4. What is the mass in grams of this aluminum block? Den of Al = 2.70 g/cm3
Now here are my calculations to part one, which dont look right... but I tried!! I really need to learn this... UGH
M = 82.00 ounces = 82.00-oz / 16-oz/lb = 5.125-lbs
D = 19.3-g/cm^3 = 19.3-g/cm^3 / 453.6-g/lb = 0.04-lb/cm^3
V = 5.125-lbs / 0.04-lbs/cm^3 = 128.125-lb/cm^3
V = 128.125-lb/cm^3 x 16.4-cm^3/in^3 = 2101.25-lb/in^3
so THIS , No??
