A rectangular block is gradually pushed faced-down into a liquid. The block has height d; on the bottom and top the face area is A=5.67 cm^2 . Also shown is a graph that shows the apparent weight W_app of the block as a function of the depth h of its lower face. What is the density of the liquid in units of g/cm^3

Originally I used the equation B=p(fluid)ghA and solved for the density of the fluid. First of all, is this the right equation to use?
