A beaker is filled with water to its brim. A child, while playing drops his ball of mass 1 kg into it and eventually ends up wetting himself with water. He weighs the water and found it to be 1 N. Find the buoyant force experienced by the ball.


  1. 1 N

  2. 2 N

  3. 3 N

  4. 4 N


Solution

The correct option is A

1 N


According to Archimedes principle, the weight of the liquid displaced is equal to the buoyant force. Here the weight of the displaced liquid is 1 N, so the buoyant force would be 1 N.
