Please, explain why do you think that blowout preventer (BOP)was likely a hydraulic system (in the 2010 Deep Water Horizon oil spill accident), and what are the advantages and disadvantages of this hydraulic system in the Deep Water Horizon oil spill. Give an example from this real life situation. Also, what was the relationship between buoyant force and gravity in this accident.Thank you in advance.
