We’re asked to compute for the radius of a spherical atom in centimeters given its density and mass.

Given:

Density _{sp.atom} = 1.0 x 10^{14 }g/cm^{3}

Mass _{sp atom} = 2.0 x 10^{-23 }g

If the density of a certain spherical atomic nucleus is 1.0 × 10^{14} g/cm^{3} and its mass is 2.0 × 10^{-23} g, what is its radius in cm?
