Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is what I got. I might have done something wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's counting it wrong saying to cube the cm to m conversion so the units will cancel. Any idea what I could be doing wrong there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I multiplied the 19.3 by .10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's saying "You forgot to cube the cm to m conversion factor to makes the units cancel properly", it's an online site called Connect. It lets you got and check your answers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1bro. Gold is a lot heavier than 1.93 kilos per cubic meter

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.119.3 g/cm^3 * 1kg/1000g*(100cm/1m)^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1100 cm^3 != 1m^3 (100)^3 cm^3 = 1 m^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a cubic meter of gold is going to be 19300 kilograms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1metals are heavy, and gold is EXTREMELY heavy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it would be 19,300

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it makes no sense for a cubic meter of gold to weigh 1.93 kg... you should always check your answers. 1.93 kg is around 4.25 pounds. a cubic meter is a box 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet. Do you really think a solid metal box 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet would weigh only 4.25 pounds?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the answer is no, it will weigh much more than 4.25 *tons* if it is gold

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the number you came up with, fyi, is approximately the density of certain *gases*

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1air has a density of around 1.2kg/m^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Comparing the weights makes it make more sense.
