Physics (Please, it's a minor error)

posted by .

A rectangular block has dimensions 1.5cm x 3.2cm x 3.9cm and a mass of 61g.
Determine the density in SI units

My taking on the question,
Mass= 0.061kg
Volume= 0.1872m

Density=0.061kg/0.1872m=0.3258547kgm^-3

Can someone please tell me where I'm going wrong?

  • Physics (Please, it's a minor error) -

    V = 0.015*0.032*0.039=1.872*10^-6 m^3.
    Mass = 0.061 kg.

    D = 6.1*10^-2kg/1.872*10^-6m^3
    D = 3.26*10^4 = 32,600 kg/m^3.

  • undenominated science -

    61g/18.72m

    equals 61000g/1872cm

    32.585g/cm

    changed to 3258.54 kg/m
