Textbook Problem

A 20.0-kg lead mass rests on the bottom of a pool, (a) What is the volume of the lead? (b) What buoyant force acts on the lead? (c) Kind the lead’s weight, (d) What is the normal force acting on the lead?

(a)

To determine
The volume of the lead.

Explanation

Given info: Mass of the lead is 20.0kg and density of the lead is 11.3×103kg/m3 .

The formula for the volume of the lead is,

Vlead=Mleadρlead

  • Mlead is mass of lead.
  • ρlead is density of lead.

Substitute 20.0kg for Mlead and 11.3×103kg/m3 for ρlead to find Vlead

(b)

To determine
The buoyancy force on the lead.

(c)

To determine
The weight of the lead.

(d)

To determine
The normal force acting on the lead.
