You used the grams as your mass instead of kg. Multiply your answer by 1000 to get the correct answer
A planet is estimated to have a mass of 1.8344 x 1024 kg. Assuming the planet is a sphere of average radius 5399 km, calculate the average density of the planet in units of g/cm3.
density=mass/volume
so i convert the 1.8344 x 10^24 kg to g= c
Volume of sphere=4/3 x pie x r^3
=4/3 x pie x 5399^3
= 6.59217 x 10^11 km^3
km^3 --> 6.59217 x 10^26 cm^3
then d= 1.8344 x 10^24 g/6.59217 x 10^26 cm^3
=0.002783
is there anything wrong with my answer?
this is a mutiple choice and the closest answer is
2.78 g/cm3but it just doesnt seem right.
Help is very appreciated, thanks!!
