A bag contains a mixture of copper and lead BB's. The average density of the BB's is 9.87 g/cm^3. Assuming that copper and lead are pure, determine the relative amounts of each kind of BB.
Density Pb = 11.4
Density Cu = 8.96
You need to confirm these.
Let x = fraction Pb BBs, then
1-x = fraction Cu BBs.
11.4(x) + 8.96(1-x) = 9.87
Solve for x, then evaluate 1-x.
check my work. Check my thinking.
What do you do next?
Solve for x. After you know x, you can find 1-x. x is lead and 1-x is Cu.
Nice website for me!!! Ok and good!
