Potato Volume#

For our first lab, Emilia decides to measure the density of a potato. They notice that it is an unsual shape and floats, so it is hard to calculate its volume. The potato’s mass is measured to be 308 g. They then cut the potato into a cube and measure that sides of the cube have length 3.8471382876322084 inches and it’s mass is 43 g. For a uniform density potato, the mass and volume are proportional. (Useful conversions: 1 inch = 2.54cm, 1cm = \(10^{-2}\)m, 1g = \(10^{-3}\)kg)
