In air, Bob's weight is 687 N. In water, it is 34.7 N.
Determine Bob's average density.
The Attempt at a Solution
Is it correct to say that (buoyancy force) + 34.7 N = 687 N?
If so then buoyancy force = (density of water)(volume)*9.81 m/s
I can solve for the volume.
Then I can use (density of Bob)(volume)(9.81 m/s) = 687 N do solve for Bob's average density.
Is that right? I just want to make sure it's okay before doing the rest of the problem.
