Posted by Victoria on Thursday, August 26, 2010 at 6:09am.

The level of water in a graduated cylinder is at the 100 mL mark. When a platinum crucible floats on the surface of the water, the level reads 157.9 mL. When the crucible is totally immersed in the same cylinder, the level reads 102.70 mL. What is the density of platinum? The density of water is 0.997 g/mL at 25C.
The question just asks us to describe the strategy we would use to solve the problem above.
