(a) A floating boat displaces water weighing 6000 N. (i) What is the buoyant force on the boat ? (ii) What is the weight of the boat ? (b) What happens to the buoyant force as more and more volume of a solid object is immersed in a liquid?


#1

(a) (i) Buoyant force = 6000 N
(ii) Weight of the boat = Buoyant force = 6000 N
(b) As more and more volume of a solid object is immersed in a liquid the buoyant force goes on increasing.
