Question #18294

a body of mass 60kg and density 800kg/m3 is immersed in water. calculate upthrust acting on the body.

Expert's answer

The volume of the body is

V = 60[kg]/800[kg/m³] = 0.075[m³].

Therefore, upthrust acting on the body is

F = 1000[kg/m³]*9.8[m/s²]*0.075[m³] = 735[N].

V = 60[kg]/800[kg/m³] = 0.075[m³].

Therefore, upthrust acting on the body is

F = 1000[kg/m³]*9.8[m/s²]*0.075[m³] = 735[N].
