  1. a. M1*g = 15.
    M1 = 15/g = 15/9.8 = 1.53 kg = mass of object in air.
    M2 = 12/9.8 = 1.22 kg = mass of object immersed.
    M1-M2 = 1.53-1.22 = 0.31 kg lost by object = mass of water displaced.

    Dw = 1g/cm^3. = density of water.
    Vw * Dw = 310.
    Vw*1 = 310
    Vw = 310 cm^3 = vol. of water displaced = vol. of object.
    Vo*Do = 1530 g.
    310*Do = 1530
    Do = 4.94 g/cm^3 = density of object.

    b. M = 13/g = 13/9.8 = 1.33 kg. = mass of object immersed.
    1.53-1.33 = 0.20 kg lost by object = mass of liquid displaced.
    V*D = 200 g.
    310D = 200
    D = 0.645 g/cm^3. = density of liquid.
