My problems?
if 0.1 cc of corn oil spreads over a water surface of 40 square meters (1 molecule thick) what is the size (length) of a single molecule?

Also, if a pond can be completely covered with a minimum of 150 cc of corn oil, what is the pond's surface area?

Hi sheila

Can't help you on the molecule size question, but wouldn't the answer to the pond area be

150/.1*40 = 60,000 sq m?

Volume = Length * Width * Height
Area = Length * Width

Volume = Area * Height
Height = Volume / Area

Though all the units need to be the same, so we should convert the 40 square meters to square centimeters.

Height = 0.1 cm / 400,000 cm

The height of 1 molecule of the oil is:
0.00000025 centimeters (or 2.5 nanometers)

For your other problem,
Area = Volume / Height

150 cm / 0.00000025 cm = 600,000,000 cm
which is 60,000 m (as Mark posted)
