1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
no variable. it give the information about hydrometer>> A hydrometer is to be constructed with a cylindrical floating rod. Nine fiduciary marks are to be placed along the rod to indicate densities of 0.98 g/cm3, 1.00 g/cm3 ,1.02 g/cm3, 1.04 g/cm3, . . . 1.14 g/cm3 . the row of marks is to start 0.200 cm from the top end of the rod and end 1.80 cm. from the top end

2. Relevant equations
1. What is the required length of the rod?
2. What must be its average density ?
3. Should the marks be equally spaced ?

3. The attempt at a solution

for 1. question >> the length of the rod required to the liquid in that hedrometer or required to what it use for(what it need to measure)
for 2. question >> its everage density up to what inside that hydrometer or all of them have the same density.
for 3. question >> I don't know.

You need to apply Archimede's principle to this problem in order to answer the questions. What do you now about this topic?
