Be sure to answer all parts. Pheromones are compounds secreted by females of many insect species to attract mates. Typically, 1.00 × 10−8 g of a pheromone is sufficient to reach all targeted males within a radius of 0.500 mi. Calculate the density of the pheromone (in grams per liter) in a cylindrical air space having a radius of 0.500 mi and a height of 33.0 ft (volume of a cylinder of radius r and height h is πr2h). Enter your answer in scientific notation.
