Question

A block of wood floats in fresh water with 0.562 of its volume V submerged and in oil with 0.943 V submerged.

Find the density of (a) the wood and (b) the oil

Answer #1

A
block of wood floats in fresh water with 0.600 of is volume V
submerged and in oil with 0.912 V submerged. Find the density of
a.) the wood and b.) the oil

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...

A 10cm×10cm×10cm wood block with a density of 730 kg/m3 floats
in water.
a: What is the distance from the top of the block to the water
if the water is fresh?
b: If it's seawater? Suppose that ρ=1030kg/m3.

A 10cm×10cm×10cm wood block with a density of 730 kg/m3 floats
in water.
What is the distance from the top of the block to the water if
the water is fresh?
If it's seawater? Suppose that ρ=1030kg/m3.

A ball floats with 1/3 of its volume above the surface of a
fresh water pool. What is the density of the ball? The density of
fresh water is 1000 kg/m3.

A 2m3 block of wood breaks off an ancient submerged
ship at a depth of 1km on the floor of a sea. The specific gravity
of wood is 0.9 and that of seawater is 1.03.
a)What is the magnitide of the acceleration of the block of wood
before it reaches the top of the sea?
b)What is the net work done on the block of wood as it moves up
a distance of 1km from the bottom of the sea...

A 10cm×10cm×10cm wood block with a density of 750 kg/m3 floats
in water. What is the distance from the top of the block to the
water if the water is fresh?
If it's seawater? Suppose that ρ=1030kg/m3.
Express your answer to two significant figures and include the
appropriate units.

A cubical block of wood, 10.2 cm on a side, floats at the
interface between oil and water with its lower surface 1.60 cm
below the interface (the figure (Figure 1) ). The density of the
oil is 790 kg/m3.
A) What is the gauge pressure at the upper face of the
block?
B) What is the gauge pressure at the lower face of the
block?
C) What is the mass of the block?
D) What is the density of...

A 500g piece of wood (specific gravity =.5) floats in water
(density=1.0 g/cm^3).
A. What fraction of its volume will be submerged?
B. A 500g iron weight (density = 7.9g/cm^3) is hung from the
bottom of the floating piece of wood. What fraction of the wood is
submerged now?

a
solid cube of wood floats on water with half of its volume below
the waters surface. the same peice is now floated in oil which has
a specific gravity of 0.8. what fraction of the woods volume will
be below thensirface of the oil? still half, more than half or less
than half?
