14.63: To the given precision, the density of air is negligible compared to that of brass, but not compared to that of the wood. The fact that the density of brass may not be known the three-figure precision does not matter; the mass of the brass is given to three figures. The weight of the brass is the difference between the weight of the wood and the buoyant

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
