Vanillin (used to flavor foods) can be detected at 2.0 x 10-11 g/L of air. If the current price of 50g of vanillin is $112, determine the cost to supply enough Vanillin so that you would be able to detect it in an aircraft hanger with a volume of 5.0 x 107ft3(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What I did was 5.0x107ft3 x28.32L= 1.42x109L, then I did

2.0x10^-11*g/L 1.42 x10^9L= 2.84x10^-2 g, then

2.84x10^-2 g* $112/50g= $6.36 x10^-2 or $.064?? but it does not seem right to me. Thanks for your help
