**1. Homework Statement**

Original Question -

A fishing boat displaces 3.31×10e3 kg of liquid when floating in fresh water (ρ=1000 kg/m3). If salt water has a density of 1.05×10e3 kg/m^3, how many kilograms of water would the boat displace if it were floating in salt water?

==> answer is 3.31e3 kg

My Question -

By what amount would the volume of water displaced by the boat change?

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Not sure what I'm doing wrong...

d= m/v

v= m/d

vsalt= 3.31e4 kg/1050 kg/m^3

~ 3.152 L

voriginal = 3.31e4 kg/1000 kg/m^3

= 3.31 L

Change in volume = 3.31L - 3.152 L

~0.158 L
