500g Al--mass of a cube of Au of same dimensions

Postby herbalearn » Wed Jan 19, 2005 6:06 pm

What conversion formula is used here? I am trying to find the dimensions of a cube of gold based on the weight of a cube of Al. First I would need to fid the dimension of the cube of Aluminium, but how do I do that?

Look up the density of gold and aluminum, make sure the units are the same, both g/cm^3 or kg/m^3

Multiply 500 g x Au density/Al density

You don't really need the volume but dividing 500 gram by the density of aluminum will give you to you, but watch the units.
