A jeweler has made a crown of an alloy of gold and copper. The crown weighs 0.358 N when measured in air and 0.338 N when submerged completely in water. The density of water is 1.00x10^3 kg/m^3, the density of copper is 8.92X10^3 kg/m^3, and the density of gold is 1.93x10^4 kg/m^3. Calculate the weight of the gold in the crown.

2. Relevant equations

Unknown. None are given and can't find any in my textbook.

3. The attempt at a solution

None.

I can't seem to find any information about how exactly to do this problem in my textbook or online. Help please?
