Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, December 26, 2007 at 10:25pm.

A piece of metal with a density of 4.69g/cm^3 and a mass of 1500 grams, is submerged in a container of oil, with a density of .75 g/cm^3. What volume of oil does the metal displace?

Work:

4.69g/cm^3->4690kg/m^3
1500g->1.5kg
.75g/cm^3->750kg/m^3

I'm not sure what equations to use? I know p=m/v and B=pvg.
