Homework Help: Physics (check)

Posted by Emily on Sunday, May 18, 2008 at 9:31pm.

A merchant in Katmandu sells you a solid gold 1-kg statue for a very reasonable price. When you get home, you wonder whether or not you got a bargain, so you lower the statue into a measuring cup and measure its volume. What volume will verify that it's pure gold?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got that it would be about 51.81 cm^3 since v=m/d,...

v = (1000kg)/(19.3 g/cm^3)
v = 51.81 cm^3

Does this look right to anybody?
