Thank you In advance

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.
$\displaystyle l = \frac{m}{\rho A}$
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
$\displaystyle n_{\text {atomic layers}} = \frac{m}{\rho Ar_{atom}}$
Note all units should be SI
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 . Thank you for the answer!! =)
