If the density of a 225g stuffed plush toy is 1.25g/cm^3 and the water volume in a glass is 25 ml, find the new level of water after the toy is pushed under water.
I know that D=m/v
so 1.25=225/v
so 1.25/225=v
so I got .005 which cannot possibly be right.
I am obviously doing something wrong. Please help! Thanks!

  1. What is the volume of the toy?

    answer: mass/density=225/1.25 cm^3

    so, if no water is absorbed, the new volume is.... 25ml+225/1.25 ml

  2. by the way, this line is wrong:
    so 1.25/225=v

    it should read
    so 1.25/225=1/v
