Hmmm....

If an aluminum can weighs 10 grams, how much would a can of the exact same dimensions weigh if it were made of magnesium? (in grams...)

atomic aluminum weighs 26.98 magnesium's atomic weight is 24.31 ...

Re: Hmmm....

is that due to the fact that the atomic weight of magnesium is 9.0104* % lighter?

Re: Hmmm....

9.01 grams....


I just use the cross multiple rule. X/X = X/X In this case 10/26.98 = n/24.31 giving you 243.1 = 26.98n then divide 243.1/26.98 = n = 9.01

I use this formula with gears on mustangs all the time.


Dam, guess I could have read further up in the thread before answering... Thought I had the first right answer

That was what I based my wild guess on.
