the question:

The nucleus of a uranium atom has a diameter of 1.5 * 10 to the -14 and a mass of 4.0 * 10 to the -25.

It then asks what the density of the nucleus is.

I know that nucleus density is Mass/Volume, and I calculated the volume to be the radius (.5(1.5 * 10 to the -14)) squared times pi. this gave me 1.76 * 10 to the -28. So am i correct with an answer of 4.0 * 10 to the -25 / 1.76 * 10 to the -28? or am i going about this problem wrong? please help.
