Conversion of units 2002-04-29
From Matt:
I am having trouble finding a workable equation for the following problem, particularly the conversion of two systems of measurement.

The question states that there are 27 grams of salt in a kilogram of seawater. And it asks how many tonnes (1 tonne = 1000 kilograms) of salt are there in one cubic kilometer of ocean. It also says that the density of seawater is 1.1 g/cm3.

What is the equation and how do I figure out how many kilograms there are in a cubic kilometre?
