Step 1

Given:

Density of the iron anchor = 7870 kg/m3

Buoyant force = 293 N

Density of water = 1000 kg/m3

Step 2

Part (a): Volume of anchor can be calculated as: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseW -W V = аp where F, is the buoyant force Pa is the density of water g is the gravitational acceleration plug in the values 293 V = 1000 x 9.8 V 2.99x10 m3 fullscreen
Step 3

Mass of anchor can be... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseM Vp where, Vis the volume of anchor pis the density of anchor plug in the values M 2.99x 10x 7870 M 235296.94x 10 M 2352.97kg fullscreen
