(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); A concrete column has a diameter of 350mm and a length of 2m. If the density (mass/volume) of concrete is [tex]2.45\frac{Mg}{m^3}[/tex]. determine the weight of the column in pounds

The answer to this problem is given as 1.04 kip not pounds like the question ask for, but that is not my problem. This seems like and probably is an easy problem to answer but I cant figure out what I'm doing wrong. Here is what I've done to solve this problem:

The first thing I did was change the Mg to Kg and the mm to m. No biggy.

The only other info I have is the dimension of the column. I used that to find the volume of the column [tex] V_c= \pi*r^2*h[/tex]. Then i just formed a simple ratio with the mass as my unknown. This method does not work for me. any Ideas.
