I am doing an exercise from my physics book right now.
I am given:
1 molecule of hydrogen corresponds to 3.7x10^-26 m^3
1 molecule of led corresponds to 2.99x10^-29 m^3
the ratio of these volumes is 1.22x10^3
Q: Determine that the order of magnitude of the ratio separation of hydrogen molecules / separation of lead atoms is 10
The Attempt at a Solution
I have calculated the given data i described above, this is part d of the question and i have no idea!
