How many Al atoms thick is the aluminum foil if it is 0.00157cm thick.

1 Al atom = 286pm

Convert pm to m

286pm = 2.86*10^-10m

Convert m to cm

2.86*10^-10m = 2.9*10^-8cm

Divide aluminum thickness and Al atom thickness

1.57*10^-3 / 2.9*10^-10 = 54138

So the aluminum foil is 54138 Al atoms thick?

Am I correct? If not please correct me!

Thank you very much.
