Answer to Question 6

Back

a.    Volume of aluminium = 0.60 1.8 10-4 m3 = 1.08 10-4 m3

Volume of magnesium = 0.4 1.8 10-4 m3 = 0.72 10-4 m3

Mass of aluminium = 1.08 10-4 m3 2700 kg m-3 = 0.29 kg

Mass of magnesium = 0.72 10-4 m3 1700 kg m-3 = 0.12 kg

 

b.    Total mass = 0.414 kg

Density = 0.414 kg 1.8 10-4 m3 = 2300 kg m-3
