a 100 kg boulder is placed under the surface of water. its volume is 0.5 x 10^5 cm^3. what is the weight of the rock while under water; compare that to the weight of the rock in air (sitting on the ground)

i just found the weight of the rock in air by multiplying 100 kg by 9.8 and got 980 kg. but i don't know what to do next
