(a) How much force is required to lift the box, if the mass of the box is 100 kg?

(b) How much force is required to lift the box, if the mass of the box is 70 kg?

103 kg/m^3 is much too low.

**drwls**, Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 2:11pm(a) The buoyancy force on the box is

V*(water density)*g = 294 Newtons

The box's mass is M g = 980 N

Force required to lift = 686 N

(b) same approach, but the box weighs 686 N

Force required to lift = 686 - 294
