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.
