What is the density of sugar g/cm^3 if its density is 1590kg/m^3?

Hint: 1m^3 equals 1,000,000cm^3.

I know that 1590kg to g is 1,590,000g.

But how do I get the other half of it to cm^3?



Help.

Thanks.
:)

Your question is just a simple proportion problem. You have the needed ratio; just use it.

Sorry I can't see the proportion.
What is it?

EDIT: I meant m^3.

1590kg/cm^3 times 1000g/1kg times 100cm/1m

your units should cancel out to give you the answer...and on the last part it should be 100cm^3/1 m^3

The question is asking to convert from kg/m^3 to g/cm^3.

oh ok my bad...then it would be 1590kg/m^3 times 1000g/1kg times 1m^3/100 cm^3

but 1 m^3 = 1,000,000 cm^3

put that 1,000,000 cm^3 in place of my 100cm^3

The answer will be 1590*1000/1000000 = 1.59g/cm^3.
