here is the problem..

A round wooden log with a diameter of 71 cm floats with 27% of its radius out of the water. What is the log's density?

Yes my friend found the answer using integrals... I believe it was 919 kg/m3 roughly.... but is there possibly an easier way of finding this without using integrals of calculus because then it makes it too involved ok a question to me... and if there is not then could you help by showing me how he used integrals.. btw I took calculas last year and passed and now have credit for college... but It would be great if someone could explain how to get the answer...
