Question:

A 10.0-kg block of metal measuring 12.0 cm X 10.0 cm X 10.0 cm is suspended from a scale and immersed in water as in Figure P14.25b. The 12.0-cm dimension is vertical, and the top of the block is 5.00 cm below the surface of the water. (a) What are the forces acting on the top and on the bottom of the block? (Take P0 = 1.013 0 X 105 N/m2.) (b) What is the reading of the spring scale? (c) Show that the buoyant force equals the difference between the forces at the top and bottom of the block.
