A 1.00-kg beaker containing 2.0 kg of oil (density = 916 kg/m3) rests on a scale. A 2.00-kg block of iron is suspended from a spring scale and is completely submerged in the oil. Find the equilibrium readings of both scales.
I was able to find the equilibrium reading for the spring scale but not the scale the beaker is resting on. Can you please explain what forces are used to find this answer as well. Thank You!
