Just a problem for my physics homework and just wondering how to solve this problem.
FoliagedPegas said:Yeah I just figured out how to do it but now I am wondering if i got the right answer. the problem was what is the volume of a block of silver that weighs 107 Newtons with the block of silvers density being 10,500 kg. the answer I got for this problem is.001 m^3 but idk if its right XD

Remember that the density has units of mass per volume. Can you fix up the units and show us your work? That will make it easier for us to check your work.
FoliagedPegas said:Well, the exact question is A block of silver weighs 107 Newtons. What is the volume of the block? so I started by dividing the 107 by 9.81 to find the weight in kg and got 10.7. The density was given in a table and the density of silver is 10500 kg so i did 10.9/10500 and got .001 m^3 as my final answer.
The volume of a block can be calculated by dividing its weight (in Newtons) by its density (in kilograms per cubic meter). For a block weighing 107 Newtons, you would need to know its density in order to calculate its volume.
The formula for finding the volume of a block is V = m/d, where V is the volume, m is the mass of the block, and d is the density of the block.
The density of a block can be measured by dividing its mass (in kilograms) by its volume (in cubic meters). The mass can be measured using a scale, while the volume can be calculated or measured using a ruler or other measuring tool.
Yes, the volume of a block can change based on its shape or density. For example, a block made of a less dense material may have a larger volume than a block made of a more dense material, even if they both weigh the same amount.
Yes, the volume of a block can also be found by measuring its dimensions and using the formula V = l x w x h, where l is the length, w is the width, and h is the height of the block. This method is commonly used for regular-shaped blocks, such as cubes or rectangular prisms.
