A block of wood with volume V floats in water with 0.67V submerged. In oil the block floats with 0.88V of its volume submerged.

(a) Find the density of the wood.

g/cm3

(b) Find the density of the oil.

g/cm3

I honestly have no idea where to begin. I started off with F_{B}=pVg. rearranged it top= F_{B}/Vg. Plugged inp= F_{b}/(0.67V)(9.81). That's all the further I got. We won't even get to this in lecture but the prof still insists we do this webassign.
