How do i find the mass of a mysteryious object?

  1. Sep 22, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    i'm suppose to find the mass of a mysterious object(a tile)i i know the area, which is centimeters squared, and asked to find the mass. would i just multiple g/cm^2 and my area together to get the mass?


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    Unless you know the mass per unit area you can't get the mass from the area alone.

    well the average mass per unit area we had from this lab was 0.285824 g/cm^2. so if i multiplied the average x area i would get the mass?
