```							Let us assume the pressure at the bottom of the block to be P1 and the top to be P2. The density of oil be d1 and density of water  be d2. So we know thatP1 = P2 + (d1)(g)(10-h) + (d2)(g)(h) where h stands for the height of block inside water.P1 - P2 = 0.8(g)(10-2) + 1(g)(2) = 8.4(g)We know that P = F/A and hence F = PA = 8.4(g) x area.Also we know that weight of block is mg = (density)(volume)(g) since { Density = Mass/Volume} and also volume = area x height.8.4(g) x area = (density)(area)(height)(g)8.4 = density x height { height = 10 cm }density = 0.84 g/ccmass = volume x density = 0.84 x 1000 = 840 g
