What is the proportion of elements that shapes the Moon?

The Moon is formed mainly by the following elements:

OXYGEN, density: 1.4 g/cc

SILICON, density: 2.33 g/cc

ALUMINIUM, density: 2.7 g/cc

HIERRO, density: 7.86 g/cc

CALCIUM, density: 1.55 g/cc

MAGNESIUM, density: 1.74 g/cc

SODIUM, density: 0.97 g/cc

POTASSIUM, density: 0.86 g/cc

Make your proper composition of the Moon to obtein the real density of the Moon.

()

We know the average density of the Moon, elements which forms the Moon and also we know the densities of all of them .

You must calculate this one:

- The proportion of elements that forms the Moon. Observe, that radius will change if you take another choosen proportion.

- You can calculate it, if you make some combinations of the proportions, moving the buttons untill to obtein 100%.

- Use the formule that is known by us to calculate the average density.
