**Problem: Consider two identical ships, one loaded with a cargo of cork (which floats), and the other empty. Which ship displaces more water?**

*My answer:*

V=V

m_1>m_2

and,

\rho_1=\frac{m_1}{V}

\rho_2=\frac{m_2}{V}

so,

\rho_1>\rho_2

\rho_1 displaces more water because the mass added to the ship raises the density.

**Conclusion:**Is my approach to answering this question correct?
