An object with uniform density and a weight of 6 kgm is floating in a tank of liquid. The tank is #50cm xx 50 cm xx 40 cm# in size; the tank when empty weighs 40 kgm and when containing liquid weighs 100 kgm.
Exactly 75% of the object floating in the liquid is submerged.
What is the volume of the object?
