    Dark matter density calculation

    Thanks a lot for you reply. Yes thhe question also asked us to compare the the mass of dark matter within the Solar System with the mass of normal matter? If iVe applied everything correctly then the answer I got for rho= 3v^2/4gPir^2 =2.77*10^-21 gave us a mass of =3.8*10^19 Kg...
