## Homework Statement

A 0.02 m x 0.01 x 0.03 block of copper (density = 8.8 g/cm3) is suspended submerged in milk (density = 1.03 g.cm3) by a string. How much tension is in the string?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

My initial thought for an equation was:

T+Fb(buoyancy)-mg=0

T+ ρgVdisp-mg=0

T+60.564-58.8=0

T=-1.76N

This is definitely not the right answer, and I'm not 100% sure this is even the right equation. Can anyone please help me figure out what the tension in the string should be?
