An object with a weight of 600 N floats in water because its weight is compensated for by an equal-magnitude upthrust force. The area of the object that the upthrust force acts on is 1.5 m2. What is the magnitude of the pressure of the water on the object?
An object that floats displaces 12 kg of water. The water has a density of kg/m3. How many cubic meters of water does the object displace?
An object with a weight of 250 N floats in water. What is the upthrust force that the water exerts on the object? Consider the vertically downward direction to be positive.
