Mole of Marbles Covering Canada By: Akash & Kevin
Question A mole of marbles would cover continental Canada to a depth of how much?
Formulas Diameter of a Marble = 1cm Radius of a Marble = 0.5cm Area of a Sphere ( 1 Marble): 4pi(r)^2 Area of continental (land) of Canada: 9,093,50700000 sq. cm Thickness = mole of area of marbles / area of Canada
Calculations = 6.022x10^23(3.14) / 9,093,50700000 = 2.07x10^12 = 4pi(r)^2 = 4pi(0.5)^2 = 3.14 sq. cm Therefore a mole of marbles would cover continental Canada to a depth of 2.07x10^12.
