just a little rusty on the conversion side of maths at the moment, so was wondering about this question:
'An ice cube is 2.00 in. on a side and weighs 1.2*10^2 grams.
a) what is the density of the ice?
b) what volume of water (d=1.00g/ml) is obtained when the ice cube melts?'
I have attempted part a, but never got the real answer (which is 0.916g/cm^3)
so here is what I was starting:
mass = 1.20*10^2g
converting in. to cm: 1in. = 2.54cm
therefore 2in. * (2.54cm/1in.) = 5.08 cm.
therefore vol.= pi(5.08)^2(5.08)
I don't know what I have messed up, but if someone could help me understand, that would be appreciated!!
