Question

# A body floats in water with $$40$$% of its volume outside water. When the same body floats in an oil, $$60$$% of its volume remains outside oil. The relative density of oil is

A
0.9
B
1.0
C
1.2
D
1.5

Solution

## The correct option is D $$1.5$$Relative density = fraction of body immersed Relative density w.r.t. water = 0.6Relative density w.r.t oil = 0.4Relative density of oil w.r.t. water = $$\dfrac { 0.6 }{ 0.4 } =\dfrac { 3 }{ 2 } =1.5$$Physics
