Phys 2211 Question

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!)

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
