## Homework Statement

A particular object weighs 313 N in air and 254 N when immersed in alcohol of density 0.7 g/cm3. What are the volume and the density of the object?

## Homework Equations

D=m/vL

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found the volume by: 313-254 N to find the actual weight, then I divided it by 9.8 to get it into Kg, then I used the density formula to solve for volume which gave me 8.6L

So the volume is taken care of! 50% of the problem done :)!

As for the density, I'm confused because I thought I would just plug in my known values but it doesn't work. Can someone please guide me as to how I would find the density of this object? I greatly appreciate it!
