cork capacity of elevation

Hello,

I have an in water floating plastic-ABS bowl , surface 40 x 16 cm, in total 6 kg,

if I put 84 gr. of Cork, density 0.4 gr/cm³ , under it,

how much cm. will it rise in the water ?


84 gr./ 0.4 gr.-cm³ = 210 cm³ volume cork

40 cm x 16 cm = 640 cm² / 210 cm³ cork = 3.048 cm elevation ???


Is my thinking correct ?


Greetings,

Danny

Hello Sir Stanton, Thank You for the answer, it certainly helps me in the right way. And Yes it is a rectangular prism. I will now search further on the cork-rective measures. Thank You for the quick and useful reply. Greetings, Danny
