A 6 kg. piece of metal displaces 1 liter of water when submerged. What is its density?

The volume of the water dispaced was given, so...

Density metal= massmetal/volumemetal

The volume of water displaced is the same as the volume of the metal.

• Fluid Mechanics -

density= 6000g÷1000ml

=6g/ml

Is this correct?? Metal block weighs 500g in air and 446g completely submerged in water. Calculate density and relative density. Density of water = 1000kg/m3 BF (Buoyant force) will be 500g-446g = 0.54 g (or 0.054 kg). For volume:
