an object of volume 0.0882 m^3 is immersed in a fluid; it experiences a buoyant force of 671 N. What is the density of the fluid?

The "buoyant force" is the weight of the fluid displaced or moved out of the way = mass of fluid * g. = 671N
So mass of fluid = 671/9.8 = 68.5kg. Now we know the mass and the volume is given so Density = Mass/Volume
Density = 68.5/0.0882 = 776kg/m³
