Question

piece of cork is held partially submerged in water by a string attached to its bottom. The weight of the

cork in air is 20.0 N. The tension in the string is 10.0 N.

(a) What is the buoyant force on the cork? (Newston's 1st law)

(b) What is the volume of the cork under water? (Archimedes Principle)

(c) If this volume is 20.0% of the total volume of the cork, what is the density of the cork?

Oil of density 700 kg/m3 is now poured slowly over the water. The oil forms a layer over the water and surrounds the cork.

(d) The maximum tension the string can bear is 75.0N. When this tension is reached, what is the buoyant force on the cork due to the oil ? (Note that since the cork is tethered by the string, the volume under water is still the same.) [Buoyant force component due to water is the same as in part a]

(e) What percentage of the cork’s volume is in oil? [cork is partly in air, partly in oil & partly in water - not completely coverd by oil- use Force buoyancy from part d to calculate the volume in oil]

(f) The string breaks and the cork floats to the top. The cork is now in contact only with the oil, i.e., it is above the water. What percentage of its volume is in oil? [ cork now floating in oil only]

Answer #1

(a)

Buoyant Force = Weigth of the cork + Tension in the string

Buoyant Force = 20 + 10

**Buoyant Force = 30 N**

(b)

We know, Buoyant Force Fb = p*g*V

30 = 1000 * 9.8 * V

**V = 0.00306 m^3**

(c)

20/100 * x = 0.00306

x = 0.0153 m^3

Density = Mass/Volume

p = (20/9.8) / 0.0153

**p = 133.4 kg/m^3**

(d)

Total Buoyant Force = Weigth of the cork + Tension in the
string

Buoyant Force due to oil + Water = 20 + 75

Buoyant Force due to oil + 30 = 95 N

**Buoyant Force due to oil = 65 N**

A block of wood floats partially submerged in water. Oil is
poured on top of the water until the block of wood is totally
submerged, partially in water and partially in oil as shown in the
figure. A clear cup is partially filled with water, and has oil
floating on top of the water, almost filling the vessel. Completely
submerged in the fluids is a block. The block floats so that part
of it is in the water and part...

Archimedes' Principle Lab:
We used a 250mL beaker and measured the mass of 3 objects. We
then tied a string around the objects and submerged them in water
and recorded the masses.

A sphere of radius R is completely submerged in a container of
water. The sphere displaces 1m^3 of water. What is the buoyant
force? Assume the density of water ρw = 1000kg/m3 . Hint: The
volume of a sphere is given by V = 4/3πR3
Then, find the density of the sphere given that its weight in
air is 15, 000 kg · m/s2 and the radius R = 1m

A block of aluminum is attached to a nylon string that has a
diameter of 4. 0cm. The block is fully immersed and suspended by
the string in a container filled with oil. The density of the oil
is 650.0kg/m3, the density of the aluminum block is 2700.0kg/m3,
the volume of the aluminum block is 0.0700m3, the Young’s Modulus
of nylon is 3.00x109Pa.
a) Calculate the tension in the string holding the aluminum
block when the block is fully immersed?...

1. In the space below,
a. state Archimedes’ Principle
b. define density
c. Mathematically, derive an equation based on this laboratory
that uses Archimedes principle to measure the density of an object
in terms of measurable quantities. Make sure the density of the
object is NOT in terms of the unknown volume of the object in
question. You can assume you know the density of water.
d. Be sure to draw a free-body diagram of the mass attached to
the...

If the experiment has been done correctly, you will have
discovered that the density of water has a maximum value at a
temperature of 4 °C. The density of water is often quoted as being
1.000 g cm-3 (or 1000 kg m-3) at this temperature. The density of
ice at 0 °C is approximately 0.917 g cm-3 (or 917 kg m-3). An
iceberg will therefore float because it is less dense than the
fluid it is immersed in. Consider an...

A flower falls to the bottom of a lake. Once it is on the
bottom, it will release pollen (a little sphere) which begins to
float towards the surface The drag force on a sphere in fluid is
Fdrag=6πrηv,
where r=100 μm is the radius of the pollen,
η=10^−3 Ns/m^2 is the viscosity of water and v is the
velocity of the pollen. The density of pollen is
p=300kg/m^3 and the density of water is
ρw=1000kg/m3. The pollen floats due...

The curator of a science museum is transporting a chunk of
meteorite iron (i.e., a piece of iron that fell from the sky -- see
picture at left) from one part of the museum to another. Since the
chunk of iron weighs 1240 N and is too big for her to lift by
herself, she is using a hand cart (see figure at right). While
passing through the marine mammals section of the museum, she
accidentally hits a bump and...
