- There are two forces which act on a body immersed in a liquid. Name these two forces and give the directions in which they act.
- What happens if the density of object is more than density of liquid in which it is immersed?
- The two forces are
- Weight of the body acting downwards, i.e. it tends to pull down the object.
- Buoyant force acting upwards, i.e. it tends to push up the object.
- Objects having density less than that of a liquid, float on the liquid. Objects having greater (more)
density than that of liquid, sink in the liquid.
