A solid 200-g block of lead and a solid 200-g block of copper are completely submerged in an aquarium filled with water. Each block is suspended just above the bottom of the aquarium by a thread. Which of the following is true?The buoyant force on the copper block is greater than the buoyant force on the lead block.The buoyant force is the same on both blocks.More information is needed to choose the correct answer.The buoyant force on the lead block is greater than the buoyant force on the copper block.
B.force = volume of liquid submerged * density of water * g so it only... View the full answer
- as given mass is same and density of lead is greater than copper so volume of lead would be less ( density = mass/volume) , so we have more buyont force on coppper due to its large volume than lead
