Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3start with what you are given, and multiply that by ratios of 1, until you get the units you need

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3just do the normal relationship between cm and m, then cube both

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.310^(2) m = 1 cm cube both sides 10^(6) m^3 = 1 cm^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 125 x 10^6 m^3 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the cm^3 unit cancels from numeratior and denominator, so you cant mix up multiplying or dividing by the 10^6, otherwise the units wont work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That is the general way to do any sort of unit conversion, and other things forget about the numbers till the very end, just start with the given, multiply by fractions of 1 so that the units cancel and move towards what you need, may take many more fractions than just 1 used here to change it over ... good luck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3long as the units cancel out to leave the right one, the numbers should work themselves out, if you put each ratio value in right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do the "10^3" cancel out even if they aren't in the same unit?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Answer key says it's 7.8 x 10^3 kg/ml

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh and the answer key for the first one says it's 125 x 10^3 m^3 not 125 x 10^6 m^3, why?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yeah , that simple, i always just remember how each unit relates to the base unit, then you just have to remember one thing only, like for a mL 1 mL is 10^3 L i always change the base unit to the other ones, easier to remember i think , maybe not

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3after you get the units right, all you have to do is multiply through all the top numbers, then divide through by all the bottom numbers to get the value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3oh yeah just saw what you typed above, yeah you can take care of all the constant numbers all at once , the unit it came from doesnt matter, just think of the unit as another term in the thing tha tis being multiplied to it's number, the thing is just a bunch of multiplication and division, you can do that in any order

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1443324302561:dw I still have a question: I got 125 x 10^6 m^3 but in my text it says I should get 125 x 10^3 m^3 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if you think about mini cubes with sides 1 cm and a huge cube with side 1 m you will calculate that it will take 1 million small cubes to fill the large

DanJS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Volume of both cubes at the time the small cm cubes fill the large m side length cube, 1m*1m*1m = 1 m^3 100 cm * 100 cm * 100 cm = 1000000 cm^3 a million cubic cm to fill a cubic meter or 1*10^6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah it must be wrong, well it's not an actual textbook, it's a handout my teacher gave us. Like it must be a typo or something.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Did the same thing in the problem, except forget rememboring higher dimension relationships like cm^3 to another length ^3 Relate them in the 1 dimensional way, then cube everything

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3[1 cm] = [10^(2) m] all you have to remember, or have a prefix chart 1^3*cm^3 = 10^(2*3) m^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah I just looked at them and studied them. :) mili10^3, kilo10^3, etc, etc. so useful! :D
