"A solid wooden cube, 30.0cm on each edge, can be totally submerged in water if it is pushed downward with a force of 54.0N. What is the density of the wood?"(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know so far that the buoyant force would equal the 54N, but I don't know how to get the mass of the cube to determine the density. Can you help?
