Volume and Weight of Oil on Mars

CLMECH-OXIIPB

The weight of $0.54 \space m^3$ of incompressible oil is $12 \space N$ on the earth’s surface.

What volume of this oil (in $m^3$) would weigh $7.2 \space N$ on the surface of Mars? The gravitational acceleration on the surface of Mars is $3.7 \space m/s^2$. Ignore the atmospheric pressure.
