An object with a mass of 50.0 g displaces 230.0 ml of water when it is completely immersed. What is the buoyant force on the mass? (Use
g = 9.8 N/kg
as necessary.)

  • physics -

    Archimedes principle states that the buoyant force on an immersed object equals the mass of liquid displaced by the object.

    230 ml of water weighs 230g

    Buoyant force = mg = 0.230 kg * 9.8 m/s²
    = 2.25 N
