water has a density of 62.4lbm/ft^3 .How much does 2ft^3 of water weight at sea level and in Colorado where the altitude is 5374ft and the gravitational acceleration is 32.139ft/s^2?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Solution :

density=mass/volume

62.4lbm/ft^3=mass/2ft^3

mass=124.8lbm

w=mg

=124.8lbm*32.174ft/s^2

=4.015*10^3lbf (sea level)

w=mg

=124.8lbm*32.139ft/s^2

=4.011*10^3lbf (Colorado)

is that correct???
