Before 1986, a gold bullion in the Federal Reserve Bank was rectangular and had a volume of approximately 727.7 cm3. The density of gold is 19.3 g/cm3. A pound is approximately 454 g. Find the weight of one gold bullion to the nearest tenth of a pound
727.7cm^3 * 19.3g/cm^3 = 14,045 g.
Wt. = 14,045g * 1Lb/454g = 30.9 Lbs.
