Homework Help: physics

Posted by Tammy on Monday, December 3, 2007 at 5:27pm.

An object floats with half of its volume beneath the surface of the water. The weight of the displaced water is 2000N. What is the weight of the object?

I'm confused by this problem. How would I go about solving this? My guess would be that the weight of the object is 2000N. Is this right?
