Expert Answer:

Dear Student,
(A) Density = Mass/Volume = 500 gm / 350 cm3 = 1.43 gm/cm3
(B) The solid will displace a volume of water equal to it's own volume since the density of this solid is greater than the density of water.
Mass of water = Density of water x Volume of water = 1 gm/cm3 x 350 cm3 = 350 gm
(C) Relative density = Density of solid/Density of water = 1.43/1 = 1.43
(D) It'll sink in water, since density of solid is more than the density of water.
