    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A block of mass 20 g sits at rest on a plate that is at the top of the fluid on one side of a U-tube as shown below. The U-tube contains two different fluids with densities ρ1 = 1090 kg/m3 and ρ2 = 595 kg/m3 and has a cross sectional area A = 4.7 10-4 m2. The surfaces are offset by an amount h as shown.

    It's asking for height in m. The right side has the greater density. The total height was 20cm.
