Unformatted text preview: M . A b) The buoyant force is gA( L + x) = Mg + F , and using the result of part (a) and F solving for x gives x = gA . 14.60: a) Archimedes' principle states gLA = Mg , so L = c) The "spring constant," that is, the proportionality between the displacement x and the applied force F, is k = gA, and the period of oscillation is T = 2 M M = 2 . k gA ...
