    1st convert everything to cm and then multiply the 3 measurements to get cm^3

    \bigg(\frac{6.4in}{1}\bigg)\bigg(\frac{2.54cm}{1in  }\bigg) =

    \bigg(\frac{1.05 X 10^{-4}km}{1}\bigg)\bigg(\frac{100000cm}{1km}\bigg) =

    How Much Would The Cube Weight If The Density Of Ice Is 0.98 g. Per Cubic Centimeters.
    1 inch = 2.54 cm

    1 km = 10^5 cm convert all units to cm. {because density is given in g/cm^3}

    volume of cube = 14.5 \times (6.4 \times 2.54) \times [(1.05\times 10^{-4})\times (10^5)]

    <br />
= 14.5 \times 16.256 \times 10.5

    =2474.976 cm^3

    mass = volume \times density

    <br />
= 2474.976 \times 0.98

    = 2425.48 grams

    = 2.425 kg
