Hi everyone,

im having some difficulties with a certain homework problem i'm on.

Up until now ive solved all buoyancy problems knowing its weight in air and its weight submerged in a liquid (generally water).

In this particular problem, it gives the weight of the block completely submerged in water as 25 newtons, and the weight of the blocked cmpletely submerged in alcohol as 25.7 newtons. Then it states the density of the alcohol is 806 kg/m^3. How would I go about solving for volume of the block?

thanks in advance.
