🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Lefevre's class at UIC.

Solution: A cube of side length 13.0 cm and made of unknown material floats at the surface between water and oil. The oil has a density of 810 kg/m3.a) If the cube floats so that it is 73 % in the water and 27 % in the oil, what is the mass of the cube?b) What is the buoyant force on the cube?

Problem

A cube of side length 13.0 cm and made of unknown material floats at the surface between water and oil. The oil has a density of 810 kg/m3.
a) If the cube floats so that it is 73 % in the water and 27 % in the oil, what is the mass of the cube?
b) What is the buoyant force on the cube?
