# Useless Straw, They Said!

One day, you were drinking lemonade, and was curious to determine its density. After a while, the seemingly useless straw immersed in the lemonade caught your attention. This straw was straight and uniform in density. Then, you exclaimed "Eureka!"

(a) When placed upright in lemonade, 45% of the straw remains below the surface of the lemonade,
(b) When placed upright in water, 54% of the straw remains below the surface of the water.

Assuming the water you used had a density of $1000 \text{ kg/m}^3$, what was the density of the lemonade in $\text{kg/m}^3$?
