5If I suspend a block on a rope, what force do we need to pull with on the rope to make the block hang steady?ropeT=?mIf I immerse the block in water, what happens to the tension in the rope?W
6Buoyancy T FB W – T – FB = 0 T = W - FB W + A useful model: Immersion of the block produces an upward buoyant force, which at least partly counteracts the weight.TFBApply Newton’s 2nd LawW – T – FB = 0T = W - FB+W
8Archimedes’ Principle T = W - FBWhen an object is immersed in a fluid, there is an upward buoyant force equal to the weight of the volume of fluid displaced by the object.This applies to either full or partial immersion (i.e. a “sinking” or “floating” object)TFBmW

12A 200 tonne ship enters a lock of a canal A 200 tonne ship enters a lock of a canal. The fit between the sides of the lock is so tight that the weight of the water left in the lock after it closes is much less than the ship's weight. Can the ship float?

17A Cartesian diver can be made by completely filling an empty soft drink bottle with water. A medicine dropper is then placed in the bottle so that a small air pocket is trapped at the top of the dropper. When the bottle is squeezed, the medicine dropper sinks. When the bottle is release, the diver rises.Why does the dropper sink when the bottle is squeezed?Your answer should include a list of the important physical quantities involved, the names and descriptions of the physical principles involved.

22A wooden raft has a density of 0. 500103 kg. m-3 and dimensions of 3 A wooden raft has a density of 0.500103 kg.m-3 and dimensions of 3.05 m 6.10 m m. How deep does it sink into the water when unloaded? What is the maximum number of 70 kg people can the raft carry before it sinks?
23A hydrometer is a simple instrument used to measure the density of a liquid by measuring how deep it sinks in a liquid.A particular hydrometer was made of a uniform cylindrical rod that could float vertically in a liquid. The length of the rod was m and its cross sectional area was 2.0010-4 m2. The mass of the rod was 4.5010-2 kg. To calibrate the hydrometer it is placed into water that had a density of 1.000103 kg.m-3.How far from the bottom end of the rod should a mark of be placed to indicate the relative density of the water?The hydrometer sinks to a depth of m when placed into an alcohol solution. What is the density of the alcohol solution?
