The density of lead is well known; you can look it up in any reference book on chemistry, or on the internet. It is 11.34 grams per cubic centimeter, according to Wikipedia. But if you have a sphere that is only part lead, you can get the density of the sphere by weighing it, and dividing the weight by its volume. The volume of a sphere is 4/3 x pi x r ^ 3, where r is the radius of the sphere.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

A solid aluminum sphere has a mass of 81g. Using the density of aluminum what is the radius of the sphere in inches?

Density = mass / volume. You have the density of aluminum and the mass of the aluminum sphere. The volume of a sphere is 4/3*Pi*r^3. Therefore volume = 4/3*Pi*r^3 = mass / density. Solve for r, which is the radius of the sphere.

Which sphere is least dense?

The sphere made from the least dense material. If this is for a specific math problem, you may have to calculate density by dividing mass / volume for each sphere. The question could be about the "four spheres of the Earth" : Atmosphere Biosphere Hydrosphere Lithosphere. In that case the answer is the "atmosphere".
