You have :
--------------------------------------...

W sub Wood = ( V sub Wood ) ( rho sub Wood ) ( g / g sub C )

V sub Wood = ( 28 /100 )^3 = 0.021952 cu. m. = 21952 cu. cm.

W sub Wood = [ 0.021952] [ 680.0] [ 9.807 / 1.000 ]

W sub Wood = 146.392 N. <-------------------------

F sub B = ( V sub H2O displaced ) ( rho sub H2O ) ( g / g sub C )

V sub H2O displaced = [ F sub B ] / [ rho sub H2O ] [ g / g subC ]

F sub B = W sub Wood

V sub H2O displaced = [ 146.392 ] / ( 1000 ) ( 9.807 / 1.000 )

V sub H20 displaced = 0.0149272 cu. m. = 14927 cu. cm.

x submerged = [V sub H20 displaced ]/ [ A sub CS ]^2

x submerged = [ 14927 ] / [ 28 ^2 ] = 19.039 cm. submerged <-------------------------

x sub top to water = 28.00 - 19.039 = 8.96 cm. <---------------------------------------...
**************************************...

F sub BMAX = [ V sub Wood ] [ rho sub H2O ] [ g / g sub C ]

F sub BMAX = [ 0.021952 ] [ 1000 ] [ 9.807 / 1.000 ]

F sub BMAX = 215.283 N.<------------------------

W sub Lead = F sub BMAX - W sub Wood

W sub Lead = 215.283 - 146.392 = 68.89 N <-----------------------

m sub Lead = [ W sub Lead ] [ g sub C / g ]

m sub Lead = [ 68.89 ] [ 1.000 / 9.807 ] = 7.0247 kg <-------------------------
