1.         An ancient cylindrical gold coin is 2.2 cm in diameter and 3.0 mm thick. If the density of
           gold is 19.3 g/cm3, what is the mass of the coin in grams? Assuming the price of gold is
           $410 per troy ounce, how much is the gold in the coin worth? (1 troy ounce = 31.10

2.         The density of a solution of sulfuric acid is 1.285 g/cm3 and it is 38.08% (by weight)
           acid. How many milliliter of the acid solution do you need to supply 125 grams of
           sulfuric acid?

3.         Copper has a density of 8.94 g/cm3. If a factory has an ingot of copper with a mass of
           125 pounds and the ingot is drawn into a wire with a diameter of 9.50 mm, how many
           feet of wire can be produced? (454 grams = 1 pound)
