A solid cylinder (radius = 0.170 m, height = 0.150 m) has a mass of 7.00 kg. This cylinder is floating in water. Then oil (ñ = 0.866 kg/m3) is poured on top of the water until the situation shown in the drawing results. How much of the height of the cylinder is in the oil?
What situation is shown in the drawing?
Application of Archimedes Principle should yield the answer
