Here\'s the problem:A package of
aluminum foil contains 50ft² of foil, which weighs approximately 8.0 ozAluminum has a density of 2.70g/cm³ (cubed)What is the approximate thickness of the foil in milliliters? Can someone please solve/explain the problem? Thank you in advance!So if we unroll the foil we have a rectangular sheetIt\'s area is 50 ft²Let\'s convert to cm²50 ft² (30.48cm/ft)^2 46451 cm²The volume of the rectangular sheet is the area times the thickness(T)46451 cm² (T) V We can calculate V based on the weight using the density and solve the above equation for TNow we know the weight is 8.0 ozLet\'s convert it to grams 8oz 28.3 gram/oz 226.4 grams Density V 226.4 g 2.70g/cm³ V 226.4 g V 226.4/2.70 83.85 cm^3 Back to this equation: 46451cm² (T) V 46451cm² (T) 83.85 cm^3 T 83.85/46451 0.001805 cmOther related question
