Figure CQ9.3

To determine

The densities of the objects.

Explanation

When an object floats, its weight is equal to the buoyant force acting on it. Therefore,

ρogVo=ρwgVsub

  • ρw is the density of water.
  • ρo is the density of object.
  • g is the acceleration due to gravity.
  • Vo is the volume of the object submerged.
  • Vsub is the volume of the object submerged.

Rewrite the equation in terms of ρo
