(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A sphere completely submerged in water is tethered to the bottom with a string.?

The tension in the string is one-third the weight of the sphere. What is the density of the sphere?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Fnet = 0 = Fb-T- mg

T=(Density of water x Volume of water x gravity) - (density of sphere x Volume of sphere x gravity)

T= (denisty of water - density of sphere) (Volume of object)(Gravity)

where volume of water = volume of sphere is completely submeged object

Not sure what to do now
