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

A paperweight, when weighed in air, has a weight of W = 6.6 N. When completely immersed in water, however, it has a weight of Win water = 4.0 N. Find the volume of the paperweight.

2. Relevant equations

Fb = Wfluid

3. The attempt at a solution

I can find density using density of object/density of water=weight of object/initial weight-immersed weight

but can not seem to find out how to find volume... im stuck
