In this problem, we are given a specific weight of water. We are required to carry out the conversion of units with exponents.

Converting Pound into Newton:

$\overline{){\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{l}}{\mathbf{b}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{4}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{44822}}{\mathbf{N}}}$

Given: The unit weight of water is 62.4 lb/ft^{3}.

Find:

(a) The unit weight of water in kN/m^{3}.

(b)The density of water in slug/ft^{3} and

(c) kg/m^{3}.
