How many inches long must the section of bar be?

- Chem Help!! -
**bobpursley**, Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 8:43pmmass=density(volume)=density*area*length

where area=sqrt(s(s-a)^3) s=half perimeter=(3in*2.54cm/in)*3/2

area=sqrt(9*1.27(3*2.54*2))

check that.

**Devron**, Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 10:33pmI'm not sure that I understand what you did, but this is what I did.

1kg=1 x10^3 g

Density=Mass/volume, so

Volume =mass/density= (1 x10^3 g/7.70g/cm^3)= 130cm^3

Since in a equilateral triangle all sides are equal and since volume = cm*cm*cm or l*w*h

(130cm^3)^(1/3)=5.06cm

Converting to inches

5.06cm*(1in/2.54)= 2 inches/side
