**Unformatted text preview: **negligble compared to the weight, and the specific gravity of the crown is very large, as reflected in the above expression. b) Solving the above equations for f in terms of the specific gravity, , 1 crown water ρ ρ f-= and so the weight of the crown would be ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 N. 2 . 12 N 9 . 12 3 . 19 1 1 =-c) Approximating the average density by that of lead for a “thin” gold plate, the apparent weight would be ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 N. 8 . 11 N 9 . 12 3 . 11 1 1 =-...
