Ok, let's compare two cubes of lead. First lead cube weigh 6078 grams and its area is 3376 cm. The second lead cube is smaller and lighter at 5216 grams and 2713 cm area. The density of the first lead cube which is the bigger and heavier lead (by dividing its weight with the area) is 1.800 g/cm2 while the second lead cube which is lighter and smaller is 1.922 g/cm2.
This is confusing because in real life, the bigger and heavier lead cube will be much denser than the smaller and lighter cube. Is there anything wrong with the calculation? Thank you.
