You cannot solve for the mass with only the information provided. You also need to know the fluid dynamic resistance (drag) and the buoyancy force. They depend upon size, velocity and volume. rope tension = M g + Ma + Drag - Buoyancy > 22 N

mg = ρ•V •g = =(2.07•2.55•5) •10^-6•2702•9.8 = 0.699 N buoyancy force Mg mg - Mg = =ρ•V •g – ρ1•V•g = (ρ – ρ1) •V•g = =(2702 – 817) •(2.07•2.55•5) •10^-6•9.8 = 0.48 N.

Because the hot air inside is less dense than the colder air inside. This causes the air to exert an upward buoyancy force on the balloon. It is the same reason things that are lighter than water will float.

A submerged submarine alters its buoyancy so that it initially accelerates upward at 0.325 m/s^2. What is the submarine's average density at this time? (Hint: the density of sea water is 1.025*10^3 kg/m^3). The difference of densities will give you the net bouyant force on the...

6) A sub has a volume of 20 m3 and a density of 1500 kg/m3. It sinks to a depth of 40 meters. The density of sea water is 1025 kg/m3. a. What is the pressure on the sub at this depth? b. The sub has a window with a diameter of 30 cm. What is the net force on the window of the ...

The weight of the oak equals the weight of a 15 x 15 x 10.5 cm block filled with water (since that is the buoyancy force). That is the displaced volume of water. The density of the block is (water density)x(15 x 15 x 10.5)/(15 x 15 x 15) = 1 x 10.5/15 = 0.70 gm/cm^3

1.1 a). They say it is rising at constant velocity before the bag drops. That information contains your answer. 1.1 b) You need to provide more information, preferably the mass of the sandbag and the rest of the balloon. The acceleration of the balloon at any time is Fnet/M. ...

volume = (4/3) pi r^3 = (4/3) pi (1.5)^3 = 14.1 m^3 buoyant force = rho g V = 1.03*10^3 * 9.8 * 14.1 = 142,700 N weight down = 1.2*10^4*9.8 = 117,600 N net positive buoyancy = 142700-117600 = 25,100 N Force down - 25,100 N = 1,100 N Force down = 26,200 N mass = 26,200/9.8 = ...

Fluid Mechanics
Instead of doing the integral of pressure over the lower surface, try Archimedes. Imagine a vertical shaft, elliptical in cross section, in the water ending at your angled disc. The total force up on it will be the buoyancy or weight (mg) of water displaced.
