## Homework Statement

Fossilized ichthyosaurus remains enable us to estimate their volume. If we assume that a

3m^3 icthyosaurus was "wightless" when it swam under water. What was its weight in metric tonnes?

plugging this into the equation would give me B .. not weight??

## Homework Equations

B=Wdisp. lqd ??

## The Attempt at a Solution

B=V x density x g

g=9.81

density= 1000 kg/m^3 (assuming fresh water)

V=3m^3
