# Phys 2211 Question

#### breezie

##### OSNN Addict
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!)

Rest in peace my friend, been trying to find you and finally did in the worst way imaginable.
Yo fellas!
Where are you buddy?
Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
