An object floats on water with 84% of its volume below the surface. The same object when placed in another liquid floats on that liquid with 74% of its volume below the surface. Determine the density of the unknown fluid

  • physics -

    Do/Dw = 0.84
    Do/1 = 0.84
    Do = 0.84 g/cm^3 = Density of the object

    Do/Df = 0.74
    0.84/Df = 0.74
    0.74Df = 0.84
    Df = 1.135 g/cm^3 = Density of the fluid.
