Question

Four balls, A, B, C and D displace 10 mL, 24 mL, 15 mL and 12 mL of a liquid respectively, when immersed completely. The ball which will undergo the maximum apparent loss in weight will be :
(a) A 
(b) B 
(c) C 
(d) D


Solution

Archimedes' principle states that, when a body is partially or completely immersed in a fluid, it experiences an apparent loss in weight that is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the immersed part of the body.

So, apparent loss in weight = weight of the fluid displaced which is directly proportional to the volume of fluid displaced.

So, the correct answer is (b) with maxi,u, volume 24 mL
