Textbook Question

Textbook Question# Neutron stars are composed of solid nuclear matter, primarily neutrons. Assume the radius of a neutron is approximately 1.0 * 10 - 13 cm. Calculate the density of a neutron. [Hint: For a sphere V = (4>3)pr3.] Assuming that a neutron star has the same density as a neutron, calculate the mass (in kg) of a small piece of a neutron star the size of a spherical pebble with a radius of 0.10 mm.
