Textbook Problem

A 26-meter-tall statue of Buddha in Tibet is covered with 279 kg of gold. If the gold was applied toa thickness of 0.0015 mm, what surface area is covered (in square meters)? (Gold density = 19.3 g/cm3)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The surface area covered has to be given.

Concept Introduction:

Density: A measurement of mass per unit volume.

  Density = Mass volume

Explanation

The surface area is calculated as,
