A block of metal floats in oil of density 700Kg/m3 with 3/4 of volume in mass. Find the density of metal.

displacement mass: 3/4 V*700kg/m^3
because this also equals the mass of the metal...
density metal= massabaove/V= .75*700kg/m^3 
Well, let us assume that the block has a volume of one cubic meter.
Then 0.75 cubic meter is in the oil.
The mass of the block is then 0.75 * 700 = 525 kg
so mass/volume =
525 kg/1m^3 = 525 kg/m^3 
Thanks alot, bobpursley and Damon. But I didn't understand where did we get the mass 1cm'3. Please, help.

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 500g446g = 0.54 g (or 0.054 kg). For volume:
