9. Gold has a density of 19.3
g
mL
. The idol appears to have a volume of about
1500mL. What is the mass of the idol?
10. The density of sand is 1.6
g
mL
. If the volume of sand is also 1500mL, what is
the mass of the sand?
11. How many bags of sand would equal the mass of the gold idol?
12. Assuming Indiana Jones needs the mass of the sand to equal the mass of
the idol, how many pounds of sand would he need? SHOW ALL STEPS
