A beaker of mass 1.2 kg containing 2.3 kg of water rests on a scale. A 3.1 kg block of a metallic alloy of density

4700 kg/m3 is suspended from a spring scale and is submerged in the water of density 1000 kg/m3. What does the hanging scale read? The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .

Answer in units of N.

Here is the answer... View the full answer


1,2 Kq Beaker
Apparent weight of the block
beaker mass = 1, 2 kg
water mass = 2, 3 Rq
WA = W - FB = XMA. of = m.g - Pwat . Bio - 8)/
water density = 1000 ke3
Block mass = 31 kg
MAZ m - Pwat...
