A cake of soap placed in a bathtub of water sinks. The buoyant force on the soap is:

a- Zero
b- Less than its weight
c- Equal to its weight
d- More than its weight

I believe is D for if the cake of soap sinks, it means that the specific gravity is more than 1, so it is more than its weight....RIGHT?
