A body of weight W, experiences an upthrust R in water. What will be the apparent weight of the body and apparent density of the body when W>R?
Step 1: Given data
Step 2: Concept and formulae
Step 3: Finding the apparent weight and apparent density
Now, according to the question, .
So, the apparent weight of the body is,
And the apparent density is,
Therefore, the apparent weight is and apparent density of the body is .
