A wooden board with an area of 4.55m^2 is dropped into the dead sea (

*P sea-*1240 kg/m^-3). Calculate the proportion that would float above the surface. (

*P*wood - 812 kg/m^-3).

My understanding is that the volume (V sub) of the submerged object over the total volume (V) of the object is equal to the density (

*P wood*) of the Object over the density (

*P sea*) of the water.

Because the question has given me an area and not a volume or even dimensions to calculate the volume, i am confused as to how to complete the question.
