Unformatted text preview: g) If the lengths of the sides of the tiny cube suspended in water by a string are very small, the magnitudes of the pressures on all sides of the cube will be the same. h) The horizontal component of the hydrostatic force acting on a curved surface is equal (in both magnitude and the line of action) to the hydrostatic force acting on the vertical projection of the curved surface. The vertical component of the hydrostatic force acting on a curved surface is equal to the hydrostatic force acting on the horizontal projection of the curved surface, plus (minus, if acting in the opposite direction) the weight of the fluid block. i) The magnitude of the buoyant force acting on a submerged body whose volume is V is expressed as F B =ρg V , which is independent of depth. Therefore, the buoyant forces acting on two identical spherical balls submerged in water at different depths will be the same. Question 2 Question 3 Question 4...
