A cube of osmium with a volume of 166 cm³ is placed in fresh water. The cube's apparent weight is 35.0 N. What is the density of osmium?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is what I did:

I converted force to mass by : 35 N / 9.8 = 3.57 kg

then changed the 166 cm³ to m³ which is : .000166 m³

After that i divided the mass and the volume: (3.57 kg)/(.000166 m³)

And so I got the density as 21506 kg/m³

PLEASE HELP ME IF I'M WRONG
