alright so i have to find the density of a clay unit. im given a specific weight of the clay as 120 b/ft^3, the gravity constant as 32.17 ft/s^2. i need to find the density of the clay, i have no problem arranging the equation below to solve for density but im not used to working in imperial units and im not allowed to switch to metric. ive attempted it below and just wondering if i did it correctly

2. Relevant equations

specific weight= gravity x density

3. The attempt at a solution

density= specific weight/gravity

= 120 lb/ft^3/32.17 ft/s^2

= 3.73 lb/ ft^2 s^2

so are my units correct?
