Problem pertaining to copper density


I'm struggling with one problem pertaining to copper density, here it is: Given the density of copper is 8.96gr/cm3.Evaluate the desity of free electrons ( their no. per cm3 in Cu). I need to know the solution immediately, as I have more similar queries to complete, consider my case and kindly send me the solution.

Thanking you,

Hello Siddartha!

Once you realize that Avogadro's number is the number of atoms in a mole, that there are 2 free electrons per atom, that you already know the density, and that you can perform simple calculations, the answer is obvious. I doubt anyone on this board would want to deprive you of the pleasure of working it out!
