Hi, I did some calculations and I worked out the density of 1 neutron to be about 3.19887549*10^57 kg/m^3. However, I want to know if the method I used is correct.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Density = mass/volume, correct?

If this is true, then

Density = [mass of neutron]/[volume of neutron]

I found the volume of a neutron by modelling it as a sphere, with volume (4/3)pi*r^3. The calculation I ended up doing was;

(1.67492729*(10^27))/(4/3 * pi*((10^-10)/2)^3) = 3.19887549*10^57 kg/m^3

Where the 1.67492729 is the mass of a neutron (source: wikipedia).

Is my working correct?

Cheers
