So, I definitely failed a quiz today. We had this question:
You are discussing marriage with your significant other and decide to find out how much a ring would cost. You go to a jeweler and choose a model ring you like that is made out of plastic. The plastic ring weighs 3.5632 g and the plastic has a density of 1.21 g/mL. How much would the gold for the same ring cost? (The density of gold is 19.3 g/cm3, the price of gold is $1972/troy oz, and there are 31.105 grams per troy oz.)
I got the wrong answer, I believe it was 3600 if I read the answer key right. I was wondering how you could do this? I did it twice and got around 230 and 14 both times and I knew they were wrong but I could not figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. I believe I messed up on the density part? If it was the density, I have no idea how to do it that is why I didn't really.
