Homework Help: Thickness of a sheet of metal?

  1. Sep 10, 2005 #1
    Hi
    I have a question on an assignment that I don't know how to do. I need to find the thickness of a sheet of metal. I have the density, mass, volume, and area of the metal. If someone could please help me i would appreciate it.

    If you have the area, you already have 2 dimensions of the volume. The volume is the product of the 3 dimensions so simply divide the volume by the area to find the height (thickness)
