A wood cube 0.20m on each side has a density of 730kg/m3 and floats levelly in water.
Part A
What is the distance from the top of the wood to the water surface?

Part B
What mass has to be placed on top of the wood so that its top is just at the water level?

1. A. Hb=(Do/Dw)*Ho=(730/1000)*0.2=0.146 m
Below the the water.
Ha = 0.2 - 0.146 = 0.054 m Above water.

B.Mc=V*D = 0.2^3m^3 * 730kg/m^3=5.84 kg.
= Mass of cube.

(Mc+Mo)/Vc = Dw(Density of water).
(5.84+Mo)/0.008 = 1000kg/m^3
5.84 + Mo = 8
Mo = 2.16 kg = Mass of object to be added.
