I have one our part question left that I just don't understand! Please help me!!

Part 1 An 11.6 kg block of metal is suspended from a

scale and immersed in water as in the ﬁgure.

The dimensions of the block are 12.9 cm ×

9.7 cm × 9.7 cm. The 12.9 cm dimension is

vertical, and the top of the block is 5.07 cm

below the surface of the water.
