A 200-N Object Floats with Three-Fourths of Its Volume Beneath
A 200-N object floats with three-fourths of its volume beneath the surface of the water.What is the buoyant force on the object? The density of water is 1000 kg/m3.
E)It cannot be determined because we do not know the volume of the object.
