Step 1

Given:

1 m long beam of stainless steel

cross section = 2.00 cm×2.00 cm

mass = 3.02 kg.

We need to calculate the density in grams per cubic centimetre.

So, the following unit conversion is needed.

Step 2

Calculate the density:

Density = mass/volume

Mass is given and volume needs to be calculated to know the density,

Volume= l.b.h

(Product of b and h is nothing but cross section)

By substituting the values, we get...

Step 3

Now, calculate the density by substi...
