Unformatted text preview: Combined, these buoyant forces balance the canoe weight and anchor weight: a w canoe w anchor canoe B gV gV W W F + = + = 2 2 a w a w canoe canoe V g W g W V + = 2 Using the anchor weight, a a w a w canoe canoe V V g W V + = 2 Hence the volume displaced by the canoe after throwing the anchor in is less than when the anchor was in the canoe, meaning that the canoe is floating higher....
