must offer. The Crowton is one point six and three 10. Tow them minus 27 kilograms and, ah, the diameter is given. It is one point toe phantom eaters, but let's let's right. Radios off the current home. 0.6. I think he's 10 toe minus 15 meters and the density would be mass over the volume. And this would be for by r cubed. Um, do you ready by a sweet and, uh, the seas when Corinne's 85 10 to 18 toe, 18 kilograms meter cube. And in the textbook that this estimated density is, uh, 10 uh, two of the 18th as well. So these this answer a cz the same order is it is estimated in the textbook.
