## Homework Statement

A metal object is suspended from a spring scale. The scale reads 920 N when the object is suspended in air, and 750 N when the object is completely submerged in water.

a. Find the volume of the object.

b. Find the density of the metal.

## Homework Equations

d=m/v or v=md or m=dv

D of Water=1.00x10

^{3}kg/m

^{3}

1N=1kg

v=_____

^{3}

## The Attempt at a Solution

Part A: v=md

(750N)(1.00x10

^{3}kg/m

^{3})

V=7.5x10

^{5}

Honestly, I'm fairly sure that ^ is completely wrong... :uhh:

Part B: d=m/v

I am completely lost..
