Problem: Two blocks of metals have the same mass. The first block has a volume of 827 cm^3 and a density of 4.50g/cm^3.Thesecond block has a volume of 193cm^3. What is the density of thesecond block ?
Solution: (1) 4.50x827=3720
1. Give an interpretation ( not a name) for the number3720 in this context.
2. Give an interpretation (not a name) for the number 19.3 inthis context.
3720 is the mass in grams
19.3 is the unknown density of the second block, in g/cm^3
