## Homework Statement

A block of wood measuring 5 cm x 3 cm x 10 cm has a mass of 90 grams. What is the density of the wood in kg/m^3?

## Homework Equations

D=m/V

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know this seems trivial but I need to get the math down to a T. I know that it s 06.g/cm^3 but how is this converted to kg/m^3? For example, we know that 1 m^3 = 10^6 cm^3. My calculation are as follows:

(0.6 g/cm^3)(1 kg/1000g)(100000 cm^3/1 m^3). I keep getting 60 kg/m^3 but the correct answer is 6.0 x 10^2 kg/m^3. Seriously, what am I continually doing wrong? Thanks for the help!
