Two parallel shelves, each exactly 138 cm long, have exactly 32 cm of space between them. A circular hoop is placed between the shelves. The hoop's crosssection is a 2.5 cm square. The hoop barely touches the top shelf, and rests on the corners of the bottom shelf, as shown . If the hoop's density is 7.85 grams per cubic centimetre, what is the hoop's total mass?
