a cube of wood with a density of 0.78g/cm^3 is 10cm on a side. When placed in the water what height will the block float above the surface?

what am i doing wrong here:

height= Desity of cube* volume of cube

and devide by the density of water * area of the cube

H= (0.78g/cm^3 *1000)/1.00g/cm^3*600)

=1.3cm? is this correct, if not what do i do?
