Question

A piece of wood is 0.610 m long, 0.230 m wide, and
9.00×10^{-2} m thick.

A) Its density is 600 kg/m3kg/m3 . What volume of lead must be fastened underneath it to sink the wood in calm water so that its top is just even with the water level?

B) What is the mass of this volume of lead?

Answer #1

A block of wood has a mass of 3.57 kg and a density of 588
kg/m3. It is to be loaded with lead so that it will
float in water with 0.82 of its volume immersed. The density of
lead is 1.13 ? 104 kg/m3.
(a) What mass of lead is needed if the lead is on top of the
wood?
(b) What mass of lead is needed if the lead is attached below the
wood?

A block of wood of mass 10.8 kg and density 4.42 x 10^2 kg/m3,
floats on water. (a) What is the minimum amount of aluminum
(density 2.70 x 10^3 kg/m3) that can be placed on top of the wood
block and cause the block of wood and the aluminum to sink? (b) If
instead it was a block of ice of mass 10.8 kg and density 8.90 x
10^2 kg/m3. What is the minimum amount of aluminum that can be...

A block of wood, with density 780.0 kg/m^3, has a cubic shape
with sides 0.272 m long. A cord of negligible mass is used to tie a
piece of lead to the bottom of the wood. The lead pulls the wood
into the water until it is just completely covered with water. What
is the mass of the lead? Density of water is 1.00 × 103 kg/m^3 and
density of lead is 11.3 × 103 kg/m^3.

A block of wood has a mass of 3.67 kg and a density of 594 kg/m3
. Attached below the wood is a mass of lead. If the wood is to
float in water with 0.883 of its volume submerged, what mass of
lead will be needed? (Density of lead is 11.3x103 kg/m3 )

A wood cube 0.26 m on each side has a density of 730 kg/m3 and
floats levelly in water.
What is the distance from the top of the wood to the water
surface? 7.0 x 10^-2m
What mass has to be placed on top of the wood so that its top is
just at the water level?

A
block of wood has a mass m and a density of ?. It is to be loaded
with lead (density ?Pb) so that it will float in water with some
fraction f of its volume submerged. What mass of lead is needed if
the lead is attached to (a) the top of the wood and (b) the bottom
of the wood? State your answers in terms of the given variables,
using ?w (the density of water) when necessary.

When a 0.427 kg mass is hung from a certain spring it stretches
0.122 m to its equilibrium position at point P. If this mass is
pulled down 0.151 m from point P and released, what is the
magnitude of the velocity in m/s of this mass 0.0392 m from point
P? A 1.42 m3 piece of wood with a density of 0.805 kg/m3 floats in
the ocean where the density of the water is 1.027 kg/m3. What is
the...

A wood cube 0.28m on each side has a density of 680kg/m3 and
floats levelly in water.
What is the distance from the top of the wood to the water
surface? (in m)

Express your answer using two significant figures.

A cube of wood
having an edge dimension of 20.0 cm
and a density of 650
kg/m3 floats on water.
(a) What is the
distance from the horizontal top surface
of the cube to the
water level? (b) What mass of lead
should be placed on the
cube so that the top of the
cube will just level with
the water surface?

A cube of wood having an edge dimension of 18.7 cm and a density
of 645 kg/m3 floats on water. (a) What is the distance from the
horizontal top surface of the cube to the water level? cm (b) What
mass of lead should be placed on the cube so that the top of the
cube will be just level with the water surface?
