(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If the density of iron is 7.8x10^{3}kg/m^{3}, what is the highest possible height of a square based column of sides=40cm and mass of 1,000kg?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\rho[/tex]=m/v

Fg=[tex]\rho[/tex]vg (I think?)

3. The attempt at a solution

I took the length of the side of the square and used it to find a volume which I got to be .064m^{3}, I'm really not sure where to go from here or if I understand what the question is asking
