Set up appropriate equations and solve the given stated problems. All numbers are accurate to at least two significant digits.

The relative density of an object may be defined as its weight in air w_{a}, divided by the difference of its weight in air and its weight when submerged in water, w_{w}. For a lead weight, w_{a} = 1.097w_{w}. Find the relative density of lead.
