## Homework Statement

A block of wood measures 2.2m by 2.5m with depth 3.6m with weight 102KN. When placed in water, how far will it sink?

g = 9.81 ms

^{-2}

density of water = 1000kg m

^{-3}

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Volume = 2.2(2.5)(3.6) = 19.8m

^{3}

Mass = 102000 / 9.81 = 10398 kg (nearest whole)

Density = 10398 / 19.8 = 525 kg m

^{3}

It sinks 52.5% of the water.

How to continue finding how far it will sink?
