A totally immersed object will displace its own volume of liquid. The density of the liquid and the object are unchanged. The mass of the object is unchanged but a certain mass of liquid will be displaced. You can find this mass if you know the density of the liquid according to:

Density = Mass / Volume. Rearranging: Mass = Density x Volume.
