## Homework Statement

A sphere of metal has a radius of 5.3 cm and a density of 8.15 g/cm3. What is the mass of the sphere? Answer in units of g.

## Homework Equations

Density=mass/volume

Volume of a sphere=4/3лr^3

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found the volume by multiplying 4/3 by л and 5.3 squared. I got 66.1850323. I plugged this into the formula for density, manipulated it to get mass by itself and got 539.4118513. This answer seems really unreasonable. I think I need to do some conversions but I'm not sure what to convert. I think I need to convert the radius to meters but the density is in grams/cm cubed and I need to answer in units of grams.
