Solution

Given:
Volume of box = 350 cm3
Mass of box = 500 g
Density of object = Mass of objectVolume of object=500350=1.43 g/cm3
Now, we know density of water = 1 g/cm3
Since, density of box > density of water, therefore the object is going to sink in water.
Now, volume of liquid displaced = Volume of the object = 350 cm3
Mass of liquid displacedDensity of liquid displaced= 350 cm3Mass of liquid=350×1=350 g
