pushing up on the meteorite. When she gets it to the top of the water it might make it harder since when she has to pull it out of the water thebuoyant force goes away, there is a surface tension sticking it to the water (probably not much), and the holes and crevices of the meteorite willget water in them that she will then have to lift as well.
(b) The meteorite is sitting on the concrete bottom of the pool. Is the force the meteorite exerts on the bottom bigger or smaller than the force it wouldexert if the pool had no water in it? Explain.
(c) Can she lift the meteorite? Calculate how much force she would have to exert on a rope hooked to the meteorite to pull it up from the bottom of thepool. She can lift about 100 pounds, the pool is 12 feet deep, and the density of iron is about 8000 kg/m3.
