## Homework Statement

A perfectly spherical piece of metal is found at the bottom of a wishing well. The mass of the object is 0.65 kg and the radius is .25 m. What would be it's weight if it had the same volume and were made of pure gold? The density of pure gold is 19,3000 kg/m^3. Answer in units of N.

## Homework Equations

volume = (4 Pi radius^3) / 3

## The Attempt at a Solution

volume = (4 pi .25^3)/3

volume = 0.06544984694978735

volume * 19,300 = 12631.82046

My main issue is the units of N. Could someone help me with what exctly this is and how to convert to it?

I'm just looking for tips, and then I can attempt the problem and post again if I have more issues!

Thank you!

Sorry. I'm new to physics and this just confuses me.

Help would be great, thanks!
