Unformatted text preview: w b * > w b . Figure 1a Figure 1b 1. Show that the buoyant force B acting on the object is given by B = w b * − w b . 2. Show that the volume V of the object is given by V = w b * − w b g ρ water , where water is the density of the water and g is the acceleration of gravity. 3. Show that the density of the object is given by = mg w b * − w b water . w b w b *...
