A block of wood with a mass of $60 \text{ kg}$ and density of $600 \text{ kg/m}^{ 3 }$ is tied to the bottom of a swimming pool by a cable so that the block is fully submerged. The density of water is $1000 \text{ kg/m}^{ 3 }$, and the mass and volume of the cable are both negligible.

Which of the following best approximates the tension in the cable?


$400\text{ N}$


$1{,}000 \text{ N}$


$1{,}400 \text{ N}$


$9{,}400 \text{ N}$
