A spherical steel ball has a mass of 3.475 g and a diameter of 9.40 mm. What is the density of the steel? |The volume of a sphere = (4/3)πr3 where r = radius.]

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The density of steel has to be given.

Concept Introduction:

Density: is a characteristic property of a substance.  The density of a substance is the relationship between the mass of the substance and how much space it takes up (volume).

Density = MassVolume

Explanation

The density of steel is calculated as,

Given:Mass = 3.475g;diameter =9.40mm = 0.94 cm;                                       radius = 0.47 cmVolume of sphere = 43πr3                              = 43(3
