10.0 m^3 of oil is spilled into a body of water. What is the surface area of the resulting oil slick, assuming the oil molecules all float on top of the water, lining up right next to each other so that the slick is one-molecule thick, and each oil molecule occupies the space of a cube 0.45 um on each side?
