Question 1 Five blocks are ﬂoating in water as shown and have the same cross—sectional area i.e.
the same horizontal dimensions but have different heights and are made of different materials. A B C D E water level

Question 2 A beaker of water sits on a balance. A block of ma erial ’3 a H to is lowered into the water on the end of a string and is held suspended in
the water. The initial balance reading, with the block out of the water is 7 _
0.780 kg. When the block is suspended in the water, the reading
changes by 0.040 kg. a) When the block is in the water, is the balance reading greater or
smaller than the initial value of 0.780 kg? b) What is volume of the block? C) Is it possible to ﬁnd the mass of the block from the information
given? If so, what is the value? If not what additional information do you need? W O\’\ 0W1 K“ 07w MT! mm ‘5. 5" 1 Question 3 You need to siphon water from a clogged sink. The sink has an area of 0.35 m2 and is ﬁlled to a height of 4.00 cm. Your siphon tube rises 45.0
cm above the bottom of the sink and then descends 85 cm to a pail as shown.
The siphon tube has a diameter of 2.80 cm. a) Assuming that the water level in the sink has almost zero velocity, estimate the
water’s velocity when it drops into the pail. b) Estimate how long it will take to empty the sink. c) When the water ﬁrst starts to ﬂow, what is the pressure in the siphon tube at its
highest point, 45.0 cm above the bottom of the sink? d) Theoretically, what is the greatest possible height that the siphon can lift water? Mdbmxos‘b (3 338114: UK Slw'hb'ﬁK” Question 4 Water ﬂows smoothly through the pipe shown.
