A copper wire (density=8.96 g/cm^3) has a diameter of 0.25 mm. If a sample of this copper wire has a mass of 22 g, how long is the wire?

  1. 0.25 mm * 1 cm/10 mm = 0.025 cm
    so
    r = 0.0125 cm
    Area = pi r^2 = 4.91*10^-4 cm^2
    volume = Area * x = 4.91*10^-4 x cm^3
    so
    8.96 g/cm^3* 4.91*10^-4 x cm^3 = 22 g

    x = 5002 cm
    = 50 meters
