Calculate volume of object that is submerged
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
an ice cube with a volume of 45ml and a density of .9g/cm^3 floats in a liquid with a density of 1.36g/ml. What volume of the cube is submerged in the liquid.
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
I did 45ml(.9g/cm^3) = 40.5g then I divided this mass by the denisity of the liquid
and got 29.8mL is this correct if not what am i doing wrong.

Seems right to me. The mass of the cube should equal the mass of the displaced liquid.
