Your friend of mass 150 can just barely float in fresh water. Find her volume.

• Physics -

You must provide the units of her weight as well as a number. Is it pounds?

If she "barely floats", her volume is the same as that of an equal mass of liquid water.

Water weighs 62.4 lb/ft^3

150 lb of water would occupy 2.40 ft^3
