Volume = 45 cubic meters

Density = 1900 kg/cubic meters

Mass = (45)(1900) = 85500

is the unit in kilograms?

because in this site> DENSITY

it says tons. i'm confused.

Thanks. But in that specific problem, is 85500 in kilogram units? because that's just the first part.

The whole problem is this:

*A building organization has to transport a conical heap of sand. How many 3-ton dumpers are required to transport the sand if the measurements gave the following results: the length of the circumference of the base circle is equal to 35.2m, the generator to 9.5m? each dumper has to carry five trips.. the density of sand equals 1.9x10^3 kg/m^3* - May 14th 2011, 07:55 AMTheEmptySet
First a metric tonne is gives by

Tonne - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You can find the radius of the circle using the formula
