Question

# A jar filled with two non mixing liquids $$1$$ and $$2$$ having densities $$\rho_{1}$$ and $$\rho_{2}$$ respectively. A solid ball, made of a material of density $$\rho_{3}$$, is dropped in the jar. It comes to equilibrium in the position shown in the figure

A
ρ3<ρ1<ρ2
B
ρ1<ρ3<ρ2
C
ρ1<ρ2<ρ3
D
ρ3<ρ2<ρ1

Solution

## The correct option is D $$\rho_{3} < \rho_{2} < \rho_{1}$$Basic principal of density is that higher density material settle down and lower density floats. So here we can see that$$\rho_1<\rho_3<\rho_2$$$$\rho_3$$ density of solid base$$\rho_1 \&\rho_2$$ density of liquidsPhysics
