Assume that an oil slick consists of a single layer of molecules and that each molecule occupies a cube 0.792 nm on a side.
Determine the area of an oil slick formed by 1.56 m^3 of oil.
Answer in units of m^2.
1 nanometer = 1.0E9 meters
The Attempt at a Solution
.792 nm = 7.92E-10 m
(1.56 m^3) / (7.92E-10 m) = 1.97E9 m^2
I think I'm doing everything right, but it's coming up as wrong...could someone please look through my work and point out anything I'm doing wrong?
That would be much appreciated, thanks!
