Fluids PLEASE HELP

  1. Dec 7, 2005 #1
    An amusement park is planning to build a water slide, and the park owners would like to use giant corks with density 0.28 g/cm^3 as "floats" for young children. What volume of cork is needed to keep 20% (by volume) of a 40 kg child above the water at the base of the slide (assuming the density of the child is 1.01 g/cm^3).:yuck:
