Submerged Objects

  1. Dec 18, 2012 #1
    Is it wrong for me to assume the following?

    If an object is 50% submerged in water, may I say that-
    (Average Density of Object)/(Density of Water) *100 = 50

    Thank you for reading this, it's just an observation that I would like to know is(or is not) correct.

    Yes, assuming that the object is floating that way.
