Donald Duck and his nephews manage to sink Uncle Scrooge's yacht (m = 4843 kg), which is made of steel (ρ = 7850 kg/m3). In typical comicbook fashion, they decide to raise the yacht (which is now on the bottom of a lake) by filling it with pingpong balls. A pingpong ball has a mass of 2.70 g and a volume of 3.35ยท105 m3.
a) What is the buoyant force on one pingpong ball in water?
b)b) How many balls are required to float the ship?

bouyant force one ball= density water*volumeball
YOu decide if the duck's are in fresh water , or sea water.
