## Homework Statement

A rectangular bar of soap floats with 3.5 cm extending below the water surface and 1.5 cm above. what is its density?

## Homework Equations

p(rho)=m/v

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't know how to compute the volume since we are given only two lengths.

Athough, i think a better way to approach this problem will be with buoyancy.

To start,can we consider this block to be in equilibrium since it is floating? I am confused because it is also partially submerged.
