Do you actually have a problem in front of you?

The usual way to find thickness is to find out the mass, divide by the density and then divide by the area.

To find the layers of atom you'd then divide by the atomic radius (and since atomic radii are usually measured in pm you'll get a lot of them

Note all units should be SI - Oct 9th 2009, 12:25 PMJulian.Ignacio
It wouldn't be a problem IF we knew how to do it; the teacher told us to search in the internet, in books or ask a friend to find the answer. In short I don't really have to do the exercise, but due to my curiosity, i'm trying to do it (Wink). Thank you for the answer!! =)
