  1. Hi harshit.. i got a doubt in the 8th question which says WEIGHT OF IRON is 8 times the weight of OAK which means..weight(iron) = 8*weight(oak) but as per your equation at 53.23 shows weight of oak = 8*weight of iron

    Can you please explain me if i went wrong anywhere in understanding your explanation ??? it will be helpful for me.

    Thanks in advance
