Hi,

I am new to Maple and doing a trivial calculation raised a few questions. I tried to calculate the average density of a wire with the following specs:

  • length = 1000 feet
  • weight = 61 pounds

Here's what I have come up with. 

with(Units[Standard]):
wirediameter:=.40[inch]:
wirelength:=1000[ft]:
wirevolume:=(wirediameter/2)2 * Pi * wirelength:=
