Buoyancy Force

  1. Jan 21, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If you have a body that weighs 100 N dipped in oil that has density equal to 0.8 g / cm³. This same body when immersed in water begins to weigh 60 N. How do I find the density / specific body mass?

    2. Relevant equations
    Solution= 1,3 g/cm³

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Already tried using the formula of the apparent weight = actual weight - buoyant and not worked.

    You'll have to show details of your attempt. How do you know it didn't work?
