2/23/11 Picture 5
2/23/11 Order of magnitude estimates How much money is in an armored car ? A ream of paper (500 sheets) is 5 cm thick Volume of a \$20 bill is 6 cm x 15 cm x 0.01 cm = 1 cm3 Volume of compartment is (2 m)3 ~ 10 m3 = 107 cm3 If the car is carrying \$20 bills (ATM servicing), a full compartment is worth \$200M. How much does the money “weigh” ? Density of paper is similar to water, 1 g cm-3 So mass = 107 cm3 x 1 g cm-3 = 107 g = 104

### What students are saying

• 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
