Question

You place a sphere of radius R=1.54 m and of density ρ = 0.75g/cm3 in a pool of clean water. The sphere begins to float and a portion of the sphere begins to show. (a) What is the height of the portion that shows above the water? What minimum force should you press on the sphere to make it sink completely in the pool? Show your complete work step by step.

Answer #1

**part(a)**

**from newtons second law**

**In equilibrim Fnet = 0**

**Fb - W = 0**

**Fb = boyancy force = Dw*Vimmeresed*g**

**V = immeresed = pi*r^2*(R- x/3)**

**W = weight od the sphere = Dsphere*Vsphere*g**

**Dw*Vimmeresed = Dsphere*Vsphere**

**pi*r^2*(R- r/3) = (Dsphere/Dw)*Vsphere**

**pi*r^2*(1.25- r/3) =
(750/1000)*(4/3)pi*1.25^3**

**r = 1.68 m**

**height of the ball above water = 2R - r = (2*1.25)-1.68
= 0.82 m <<<==========ANSWER**

**----------------------------**

**part(b)**

**Fb - W - F = 0**

**F = Fb - W**

**F = Dw*Vsphere*g - Dsphere*Vsphere*g**

**F = (Dw-Dsphere)*Vsphere*g**

**F = (1000-750)*(4/3)*pi*1.25^3*9.81**

**F = 20064.5 N <<<<=======ANSWER**

You place a sphere of radius R=1.54 m and of density ρ =
0.75g/cm^3 in a pool of clean water. The sphere begins to float and
a portion of the sphere begins to show. What is the height of the
portion that shows above the water? What minimum force should you
press on the sphere to make it sink completely in the pool? Show

A sphere of radius R has total mass M and density function given
by ρ = kr, where r is the distance a point lies from the centre of
the sphere. Give an expression for the constant k in terms of M and
R.

A sphere with radius 0.150 m has density ρ that decreases with
distance r from the center of the sphere according to
ρ=3.25×103kg/m3−(8.50×103kg/m^4)r .
a)Calculate the total mass of the sphere. Express your answer
with the appropriate units.
B)Calculate the moment of inertia of the sphere for an axis
along a diameter. Express your answer with the appropriate
units.

A sphere with radius 0.250 m has density ρ that decreases with
distance r from the center of the sphere according to
ρ=2.75×103kg/m3−(9.00×103kg/m4)r . Part A: Calculate the total mass
of the sphere. Express your answer with the appropriate units. M =
?; Try Again Part B :Calculate the moment of inertia of the sphere
for an axis along a diameter. Express your answer with the
appropriate units.

A sphere with radius R carries a positive charge density of
ρ=2r3, take the potential at infinity is 0,
find the electric potential everywhere (r<R and r>R).

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

Procedure Reaction 1: Dissolving the Copper 1. Obtain a clean,
dry, glass centrifuge tube. 2. Place a piece of copper wire in a
weighing paper, determine the mass of the wire and place it in the
centrifuge tube. The copper wire should weigh less than 0.0200
grams. 3. In a fume hood, add seven drops of concentrated nitric
acid to the reaction tube so that the copper metal dissolves
completely. Describe your observations in the lab report. (Caution,
Concentrated nitric...

It is generally a good idea to gain an understanding of the
"size" of units. Consider the objects and calculate the kinetic
energy of each one.
