    The density of aluminum is 2.70x10^3 km/m^3, the density of iron is 7.86x10^3 kg/m^3. Find the radius of a solid iron sphere that balances a solid aluminum sphere of radius 2.86cm on an equal-arm balance.


    my work:

    (4/3)(pi)(.286m)^3 = .000098m^3 for volume X weight = .264576kg

    .264576/7.86x10^3 = .000034

    (4/3)(pi)(RADIUS)^3 = .000034

    Radius = .020029945725539 blah blah METERS--


    can someone help check this for me? (remember to covert cm to m!)
