One of the problems with debris in the ocean is that it is often difficult to see, because much of the object is under the surface of the water. An object with a density of 801 kg/m3 and a mass of 1039 kg is thrown into the ocean. Find the volume of the object sticking out of the water (use ρsea water = 1024 kg/m3).

2. Relevant equations

p = m/v

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not sure how to go about solving this problem?
