Homework Help: Help on conversion of units (density)

  1. Feb 25, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    My problem is to determine whether or not my conversion is correct.

    2.00 g/cm^3 is = _______ kg/m^3


    2. Relevant equations
    If I'm not mistaken,

    1 cm^3 = 0.000001 m^3
    1kg = 1000g



    3. The attempt at a solution
    My equation:

    2.00 g/cm^3 (1kg/1000g)(1cm^3/0.000001m^3)
    = 2,000 kg/m^3
