Ans. The buoyant force is the same in all three cases. SI Units of Mass Density: kg/m3

What is the difference in the three liquids that give rise to the different

submerged volumes?

The densities of the liquids are different. In the order of low to high

density, 2 < 3 < 1.

Reasoning:

Draw the FBD for each object. There, we can see that FB =

FB is the same for all three objects, mA < mB < mC. (choice 2) (choice 2) (choice 1)

The submersed volume of the wooden cube V1= (0.2)3m3 = 8(0.1)3m3 = 8V2
