To protect his country a king decided to build a wall made out of stone along the border. The wall had to be 3 meters thick and 5 meters high. The border of the country has a length of 500 kilometers. Assuming that one cubic meter of stone weights about 3000 kg, how much heavier becomes the earth by building this wall?

Explanation

Assuming the stones are coming from the earth, the mass of the earth of course won't change by building such a big wall.
