I believe I have correct answer, but I'd just like to confirm with others...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question: What is the density of an object that is 14% submerged when floating in water at 0 degrees C?

density of water at 0 degrees C = 999.87, according to my book

So the formula I set up is...

((density of object)/(density of liquid)) x 100 = % submerged

Filling in the blanks...

((density of object)/(999.87)) x 100 = 14%

Divide the 14 by 100...

((density of object)/(999.87)) = .14

Multiply the density of water by .14 ...

(999.87)(.14) = 139.9818 = density of object

Have I solved this correctly? Thanks for looking this over!
