A cylindrical wood puck (density = 0.75 g/cm3 ) is placed into a water bath. The density of water is 1.0 g/cm3. The wood puck has a diameter of 11.0 cm and a height of 3.5 cm. When the puck reaches equilibrium in the water bath, how far below the surface of the water will the bottom of the puck be?

• Physics -

If the puck had twice the height, how would the submerged depth change?

If the puck had twice the radius, how would the submerged depth change?

• Physics -

0.88cm; depth dependence. listen to your prof.

• Physics -

It's actually 2.63cm.
