Here is the problem, a lead cube (density = 11.3g/cm^3) is dropped into a granulated cylinder of water. the bottom of the meniscus reads 23.35cm^3. the cube weighs 97.02g.
what was the volume of water before the cube was added. my answer is 97.02/11.3g/cm^3 = 8.59cm^3 subtract that from 21.35 = 12.76cm^3. Now I need to know what is the length of one side of the cube in cm? so now I need to convert 8.59cm^3 to cm. How do I do that? or am I on the wrong track?
