Posted by angela on Friday, June 29, 2012 at 2:11pm.

A Spanish galleon is about to be boarded by bloodthirsty pirates in the shallows of a Caribbean island. To save a box of treasure on board, the captain orders his crew to secretly toss the box overboard, planning to come back for it later. The rectangular box is waterproof and measures 40.0 cm by 25.0 cm by 30.0 cm. It is made of wood and has mostly gold pieces inside, resulting in an average box density three times that of seawater.
Sinking below the surface, the box moves at constant vertical velocity of 1.15 m/s for 12.0 m before hitting the bottom. (a) Draw the free-body diagram for the box, (b) determine the magnitudes of the forces on the box, and (c) calculate the work done by each force and the net work done on the box. (d) Calculate the change in the box’s gravitational potential energy. (e) What is the change in the box’s total energy ?
