A duck is floating on a lake with 28% of its volume beneath the water. What is the average density of the duck?

Step 1

Density of water = 1000 kg/m^{3}

Duck’s volume submerged in water = 28%

Step 2

Concept used:

To float any object, the buoyant force acting on that object should be equal to the weight of that object.

An object will float only and only if weight of replaced fluid is equal to the weight of the object.

Step 3

to calculate the approximate density of fluid, the sum of...
