U-tube

Initially, the U-tube shown above is filled with water, and the level on each side is \(\ell_0 = \SI{5}{\centi\meter}.\) After some oil is poured on side \(A,\) the level on that side becomes \(L_A = \SI{7.3}{\centi\meter}.\)

What is \(L_B\) \((\)in \(\si{\centi\meter})?\)

Assume that the water and oil do not mix, and that their densities are related by \(\rho_\textrm{oil} = 0.85\rho_\textrm{water}.\)
