In typical comic-book fashion, they decide to raise the yacht (which is now on the bottom of a lake) by filling it with ping-pong balls. A ping-pong ball has a mass of 2.70 g and a volume of 3.35ยท10-5 m3.

a) What is the buoyant force on one ping-pong ball in water?
b)b) How many balls are required to float the ship?
