1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A cube of ice floats partly in water and partly in kerosene oil. Find the ratio of the volume of ice immersed in water to that in kerosene oil. Specific gravity of kerosene oil is 0.8 and that of ice is 0.9 2. Relevant equations Upthrust = V(imm)*d*g 3. The attempt at a solution I am confused. The forces acting on the block will be mg downwards, upthrust by the water upwards. In what direction will the thrust due to K.oil act??? upward or downwards??
