    Problem:
    A piece of solid metal weighing 322 grams is placed into a graduated cylinder, which is then filled with liquid mercury. The metal does not float. After weighing the cylinder and its contents the solid metal is removed and the cylinder is then filled with more liquid mercury to the same level as before. Now the cylinder and its contents weigh 110 grams LESS than before. If the density of mercury is 13.6 grams per cubic centimeter, determine the density of the solid metal.

    I know that the Density of Mercury is 13.6 grams per cubic cm = mass/volume. And that the 110 grams less comes into this somewhere.

    I also know that the Density of the Solid Metal = a mass of 322 grams/volume, and I think that the 110 grams less will also come into this.
