One cubic centimeter (10 cm^{3}) of water has a mass of 1.0 × 10^{−3} kg. (a) Determine the mass of 1.0 m^{3} of water. Assuming that biological substances are 98% water, estimate the masses of (b) a cell with a diameter of 10 *μ*m, (c) a human kidney, and (d) a fly Take a kidney to be roughly a sphere with a radius of 4.0 cm and a fir to be roughly a cylinder 4.0 mm long and 2.0 mm in diameter.
