This question comes from my Grade 11 Univ. Physics Teacher.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Problem: To as many significant figures as you can justify, determine the thickness of the aluminium foil.

1. Purpose

2. Procedure

3. Calculations (Significant Figures)

4. Conclucion

Now I know that the density of Aluminium is 2.7g/cm^3.

And I also know that the formula for cm^3 is Length X Width X Thickness.

So if i find the mass, multiply it by the density, and divide it by the length and the width, will I come out with the thickness?

He said there are many ways to do this and this is the only one I could come up with so any input or help would be much appreciated.

Regards;

Patrick
