Using the conversions below, what is the density of lithium in units of ounces per cubic inch ($\text{oz/in}^{3}$)?

$1\text{ oz} = 28.3 \text{ g}$
$1\text{ inch} = 2.54 \text{ cm}$

A

$0.00744\text{ oz/in}^{3}$

B

$0.0480\text{ oz/in}^{3}$

C

$0.310\text{ oz/in}^{3}$

D

$5.96\text{ oz/in}^{3}$

E

$38.5\text{ oz/in}^{3}$
