**The density of an object equals its mass divided by its volume. The mass of Earth is 6x10e+24 and its radius is 4000 miles (1.61km = 1mile). What is the density of the Earth in kg/m^3?**

**V=4/3pi(r)^3. D=M/V**

**Converting 4000 to Km, I get 6400. After plugging it into the Volume equation, I end up with approximately 1x10e+12. I divide 6x10e+24 by 1x10e+12, and my result is 6x10e^12. Is this the correct way to do the given problem? My answer sheet from my professor does not state this as any of the answers, and I can't think of any other way to approach this equation.**
