R = external radius,          radius of hollow portion = r

Volume of solid part of the sphere =  (1 - 3/4) * 4/3 π R³
Relative density of fluid = 3/2
Volume of liquid displaced = 1/2 * 4/3 * π R³

[ 1/4 * 4/3πR³ ] * rd_solid * g = (2/3 π R³) * 3/2 * g
rd_solid = 3

This can be obtained directly as half of the sold is floating and half is immersed, the solid has a density equal to twice of the liquid.

2.   Volume of measured at  what pressure ?  there seems to be a number missing there.

Let us assume that we want the volume of air measured at P atm to be introduced in to the Torricellian space.

Area of barometer tube is probably  10^-4 sqm = 1 sq cm.  not  10^4 sqm.

Height of barometer is 0.76 + 0.09 = 85 cm
Pressure due to air + pressure due to mercury column = atmospheric pressure
Pressure of air + density_mercury * 57 cm * g = density_mercury * 76 cm * g

Pressure of air = 13.6 * 19 * g  units
Volume of air = at the above pressure = (85 - 57) cm * 1 sq cm = 28 cm³
P V = constant

Volume of air measured at P atm = (13.6 * 19 * g * 28( / (P * 13.6 * 76 * g)  cm³
= 7 / P  cm³3)

==============================
depth of immersion = h
h * 0.30² * 1000 kg/m³ * g = 21.6 kg * g

h = 0.24 meter
