## Specific Gravity

A 6.7 kg block of some unknown material is suspended from a spring scale and submerged in water. The spring scale reads 50.0 N.

What is the specific gravity of the block?

What is the specific gravity of the block?

**What is the density of the block?****4.18**

How do you go about starting this problem?

**NEW**

Part 1. (mg)/(mg-(scale reading)) -no units

Part 2. For density, take your answer from part a and

multiply by 1000 . answer is in kg/m^3

Thats not working for me?

Im doing 7.7kg= 7700000mg/(7700000mg-58.6N)

and its giving me 1.00000761, so i put in 1.00 and its

wrong... any ideas please?

**mg**

its mass times gravity not milligrams
