a cube of gold 30mm long on each edge is worth $10,000.how much is a gram of gold worth?

  • physics -

    Multiply 27 cm^3 (which is the volume) by the density of gold in g/cm^3, (which you should look up).

    (Broken Link Removed)

    That will give you the number of grams (the mass).

    Divide $10,000 by that mass for the number they want.

    That price per gram will be much less than today's value
