I am getting the wrong answer. Can you please check my work? My answer is off by a multiple of ten.
A sample of an unknown material appears to weigh 295 N in air and 165 N when immersed in alcohol of specific gravity 0.700.
(a) What is the volume of the material?
___________m^3
(b) What is the density of the material?
____________ kg/m3
295N165N=130N
F=pVg
130N=(.700)V(9.8m/s^2)
V=18.93
F=mg
295N=m(9.8)
m=30.10kg
pV=m
p(18.93)=30.10
p=1.59kg/m^3

PHYSICS CHECK WORK PLEASE 
Henry,
See your 10:30am post.
