Solution

Given:
Volume of box = 350 cm3
Mass of box = 500 g
Density of object = `"Mass of Object"/"Volume of Object" = 500/350` = 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 displaced"/"Density of liquid displaced" = 350   "cm"^3`

⇒ Mass of liquid = 350 × 1 = 350 g
