  1. Vw=(10kg-4kg) * 1m^3/1000kg = 0.006 m^3
    = Vol. of water displaced = Vol. of the
    object submerged.

    Do = 6kg/0.006m^3 = 1000kg/m^3 = Density
    of the object. = Density of water(Dw).

    Do/Dw * Vo = 0.006 m^3
    (1000/1000) * Vo = 0.006m^3
    Vo = 0.006 m^3 = Vol. of the object.

    So the object is 100% submerged.

    How do you measure body volume? I need two ways. Thanks. Displacement is a common method. Fill a barrel full of water, then dunk the body (letting the water overflow), remove the body, and then measure the water level. Another
