Intro to Physics

A sample of an unknown material appears to weigh 295 N in air and 165 N when immersed in alcohol of specific gravity 0.700.
(a) What is the volume of the material?
___________m^3

(b) What is the density of the material?
____________ kg/m3

I am getting the wrong answer. Can you please check my work? My answer is off by a multiple of ten.

  1. This is what I have so far. My answer is wrong, it is off by a multiple of 10
    295N-165N=130N

    F=pVg
    130N=(.700)V(9.8m/s^2)
    V=18.93

    F=mg
    295N=m(9.8)
    m=30.10kg

    pV=m
    p(18.93)=30.10
    p=1.59kg/m^3
