Physics (check)

posted by .

A merchant in Katmandu sells you a solid gold 1-kg statue for a very reasonable price. When you get home, you wonder whether or not you got a bargain, so you lower the statue into a measuring cup and measure its volume. What volume will verify that it's pure gold?


I got that it would be about 51.81 cm^3 since v=m/d,...

v = (1000kg)/(19.3 g/cm^3)
v = 51.81 cm^3

Does this look right to anybody?

    The answer is correct. But, be careful in the work. In your work, you are using 1000kg when you mean 1000g or 1kg. You knew what you meant, but you might lose some points in the work.

    Oh ok! Thanks for pointing it out :-) I appreciate it!
