nucleus We thus need mass data from Appendix F: and The unit conversion factor is also needed. Solve: (a) Given The density of the helium atom is 13 times larger than the density of pure water. (b) Given In Problem 1.19 we found the density of a neutron star to be By comparison, the density of the helium nucleus is 3 times larger than the density of a neutron star. 1.21. Set Up: We know the density and mass; thus we can find the volume using the relation and the given data, and The radius is then found from the volume equation for a sphere, and the result for volume. Solve: 1.22. Set Up: From Appendix A, a thin spherical shell has volume where is the surface area of the shell and t is its thickness. We are given and and we know the unit conversions and Solve: 1.23. Set Up: The mass can be calculated as the product of the density and volume. The volume of the washer is the volume of a solid disk of radius minus the volume of the disk-shaped hole of radius In general, the volume of a disk of radius r and thickness t is

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
