How do you know the thickness of aluminium foil?There may be different types of aluminum foil, but these results were fairly precise among our class’s data, so I hope it is at least somewhat helpful.
Remember that volume (in cm3) = length in cm x width in cm x thickness in cm
so rearrange and solve for thickness: thickness = volume / (length x width)
Except — we don’t know the volume, but we can figure it out very easily.
Go to a reference book (for example, your chemistry textbook, or a periodic table) and look up the density of aluminum.
And different thickness of alfoil have different applications.
