Solution: A spherical ball of lead has a diameter of 5.0 cm. What is the mass of the sphere if lead has a density of 11.34 g/cm3? (The volume of a sphere is (4/3)πr3, where r is the radius.)

Problem

A spherical ball of lead has a diameter of 5.0 cm. What is the mass of the sphere if lead has a density of 11.34 g/cm3? (The volume of a sphere is (4/3)πr3, where r is the radius.)

 

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the mass of a sphere of lead (Pb) given that it has a diameter of 5.0 cm and a density of 11.34 g/cm3.


Recall that density is the ratio of the mass and volume of an object:


density=massvolume


Also, the volume of a sphere is given by:


V=43πr3


where: 

r = radius. Recall that diameter = 2r.
