on july 16, 1882, a massive thunderstorm over Dubuque, Iowa, produced huge hailstones. The diameter of some of the hailstones was 17 in. ICe weighs about 0.033 lb/in^3;. Whas is the approximate weightof a 17 in. hailstone?

• Math -

Volume of a sphere or radius r
=(4πr³)/3

r=17/2=8.5 in.
Density = 0.033 lb/in³

Weight = density * volume
