Question details

Problem 3.11 Archimedes Principle II A rectangular block floats in pure water with 0.500 in. above the surface and 1.50 in. below the surface. When placed in an aqueous solution, the block of material floats with 0.800 in. below the surface. Estimate the specific gravities of the block and the solution. (Suggestion: Call the horizontal cross-sectional area of the block A. A should cancel in your calculations.) Specific Gravity of Block Check precision of caclculations. What is the specific gravity of the block? SHOW HINT LINK TO TEXT Specific Gravity of Solution What is the specific gravity of the unknown solution?
