##### Reference no: EM13685640

A block of wood of mass 10.8 kilogram and density 4.42 x 102 kg/m3, floats on water.

(a) Find the minimum amount of aluminum (density 2.70 x 103 kg/m3) that can be located on top of the wood block and cause the block of wood and the aluminum to sink?

(b) If instead it was a block of ice of mass 10.8 kilogram and density 8.90 x 102 kg/m3. Find the minimum amount of aluminum that can be located on top of the ice block and cause the block of ice and the aluminum to sink?
