A rectangular block floats in pure water with 0.5 in, above the surface and 1.5 in below the surface. When placed in an aqueous solution, the block of material floats with 1 in. below the surface. Estimate the specific gravities of the block and the solution. (Suggestion: Call the horizontal cross-sectional area of the block A. A should cancel in
