if you have a graduated cylinder containing 15.5 mL and this volume changes to 95.2 mL after a metal with a mass of 7.95g is dropped into the graduated cylinder then what is the density of this metal?
Radio waves travel at the speed of light which is 3.00x10^8 m/s. How many minutes does it take for a radio message to reach earth from saturn if saturn is 7.9x10^8 km from earth?
7.9x10^8 km x 1sec/3x10^8 m
3x10^8/1sec x 60sec/min x 1km/1000= 1.8x10^7 km/min
1min/1.8x10^7 km x 7.9 x10^8/1min = 44min
