#### Solution

$\text { The dimensions of the an iron piece is 6 m } \times 6 cm \times 2 cm, i . e . , 600 cm \times 6 cm \times 2 cm ( \because 1 m = 100 cm) .$

$\text { Its volume = 600 } \times 6 \times 2 = 7200 {cm}^3$

$\text { Now, 1 }{cm}^3 = 8 gm$

$i . e . , 7200 {cm}^3 = 7200 \times 8 gm = 57600 gm$

$\therefore \text { Weight of the iron piece = 57600 gm }$

$= 57600 \times \frac{1}{1000}kg ( \because 1 Kg = 1000 gm)$

$= 57 . 6 kg$
