Gold has a density of 19.3 g/cm3. Do you think you could carry 1.30 cubic ft (rhetorical--don't answer)? How many pounds does 1.30 cubic feet of gold weigh? [453.6 g = 1 lb, 2.54 cm = 1 in, and 1 ft = 12 in.]
19.3 g/cc = 1204.8 pounds/cubic foot.
mass = volume x density
mass = 1.3 ft^3 x 1204.8 lbs/ft^3 = ? too many pounds for you to lift (without equipment).
