14.68: a) See problem 14.67. Replacing f with, respectively, w w water and w w fluid gives , - fluid fluid steel w w w ρ ρ = , - water fluid steel w w w ρ ρ = and dividing the second of these by the first gives . - - water fluid water fluid w w w w ρ ρ = b) When fluid w is greater than water, w the term on the right in the above expression is less than one, indicating that the fluids is less dense than water, and this is consistent with the buoyant force when suspended in liquid being less than that when suspended in water. If the density of the fluid is the same as that of water
