Question

A 10.0-pound ball of radius of 260 cm is thrown into seawater
(density 1029 kg/m^{3}).

**(d)** If the ball floats on seawater, what
percentage fraction of the ball’s volume is below the water
surface?

**(e)** What is the maximum diameter a ball with
*m* = 10.0 pound so that it does not float on water but
sinks to the ground?

Answer #1

A 10.0-pound ball of radius of 260 cm is thrown into seawater
(density 1029 kg/m3).
(d) If
the ball floats on seawater, what percentage fraction of the ball’s
volume is below the water
surface?
(e) What is the maximum diameter a ball
with m = 10.0 pound so that it does not float on water but
sinks to the ground?

Density of water =1000kg/m^3 Conversion: 1000L =1m^3
A princess's ball falls down a well. The density of the well
water is a constant 1000 kg/m3. The ball has a 10 cm diameter.
a. If the ball sinks, what is the buoyant force on the ball?
b. If the ball floats, with half of it in and half out of the
water, what is its density?
c. If the ball weighs 350g, does it float or sink?

What is the density (in kg/m3) of a woman who floats in
freshwater with 4.32% of her volume above the surface? (This could
be measured by placing her in a tank with marks on the side to
measure how much water she displaces when floating and when held
under water.) (Give your answer to at least three significant
figures.) What percent of her volume is above the surface when she
floats in seawater?

A block of wood
(density 713 kg/m3)
of length L = 50.0 cm, width W = 40.0 cm, and thickness
H
=
30.0 cm floats in water (density
1.000 × 103
kg/m3).
What is the
volume percentage of the wood that is above water?
If the wood is
set to oscillate, what is its frequency?
How much can the
wood carry without sinking?

A cube of wood with dimension 20 cm and density 650
kg/m3 floats in water.
a.)What is the distance from the top surface of the cube to the
surface of the water?
b.)How much mass of lead is required to be put on cube so that
the top of the cube is level with the surface of the water?

A cube of side length 10.0 cm and made of unknown material
floats at the surface between water and oil. The oil has a density
of 810 kg/m3. If the cube floats so that it is 72% in
the water and 28% in the oil, what is the mass of the cube and what
is the buoyant force on the cube?

A diver is located 63 m below the surface of the ocean (the
density of seawater is 1025
kg/m^3). To raise a treasure chest that she discovered, the
diver inflates a plastic, spherical
buoy with her compressed air tanks. The radius of the inflated
buoy is 0.41 m. If the
treasure has a mass of 215 kg, what is the acceleration of the
buoy and the treasure chest
when they are tethered together and released? The chest is 22 cm...
