## Homework Statement

A cubic meter of some material has a mass of 8600 kg. The block of material is lowered into a lake by a strong cable until the block is completely submerged. Find buoyant force on the block.

## Homework Equations

Fb= p x V x g.

p= density of fluid, density of water is 1 g/cm^3.

V= displaced volume

g=9.8 m/s

## The Attempt at a Solution

So far I have Fb= 1g/cm^3 x V x 9.8 m/s. I need to find V or the volume displaced by the cube in water. How do I do this? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
