c)If thenugget were pure gold, what is its volume in cm3 ?
if 19.3 grams occupy 1cm3. 1 Troy ounce is 31.1 grams we have31.1/19.3 = 1.61cm3 per troy ounce tha multiplied by 294.1 equals to:
473.50100

d) What is the area in m2 if the gold nuggetis hammered to a foil with a thickness of 0.0035 in.?
having the 473.50 in cm3 we can convert that to cm2 by dividingit with the thickness on cm that is 8.9x10^-3. By doing the convertion of 0.0035in X 2.54cm so we can Get the answerof 5.33 X 10^4 cm2 so now all it’s left is to 5.33 X 10^4 cm^2 ( 1m/100 cm)^2 = 5.3 m2
