Unformatted text preview: B heavy = 500Vg ------ > upward direction Another half of the ball is immersed in the lighter liquid and hence the force of buoyancy is equal to B light = density of the lighter fluid * Volume immersed * acceleration due to gravity B light = 600 kg/m 3 * (V/2)*g ------- > upward direction B light = 300Vg ------- > upward direction The weight of the ball is in the downward direction and let it be W. W=mg Mass=Volume*density => m=Vd W=Vdg As ball is in equilibrium downward forces and upward forces should be equal. B heavy + B light = W 500Vg + 300Vg = Vdg d = 800 kg/m 3 d = 0.8 gm/cm 3 Density of the ball = 0.8 g/cc...
