A light spring of constant k = 153 N/m rests vertically on the bottom of a large beaker of water (as seen in the picture below).
An m=4.63 kg block of wood (density = 675 kg/m3) is connected to the spring and the massspring system is allowed to come to static equilibrium (b).
What is the elongation, ΔL, of the spring?
I have tried this but it doesnt seem to give me the right answer:
L= (Volume of water  mass of block/ K) * 9.81
can anyone please give me some detailed help?
