Question

Leader has a density than iron in both are denser than water is the buoyant force on a lead object is greater than or lesser than or equal to the buoyant force on an object of the same volume explain your answer giving the reason

Open in App
Solution

Buoyant force is given by the product of volume of the immersed body (or the volume of liquid displaced), density of the liquid and the acceleration due to gravity.

Now, when an iron object and a lead object of same volume are immersed in water, the volume of water displaced in both cases will be same. Thus, the buoyant force will be equal in both cases.

(e) A density bottle has a marking 25 mL on it. It means that :

(i) the mass of density bottle is 25g

(ii) the density bottle will store 25 mL of any liquid it

(iii) the density bottle store 25 mL.of water, but more volume of liquid denser than water.

(iv) the density bottle will store 25 mL of water but more volume of liquid lighter than water.

(f) The correct statement is :

(i) The buoyant force on a body is equal to the volume of the liquid displaced by it.

(ii) The buoyant force on a body is equal to the volume of the body

(iii) The buoyant force on a body is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by it.

(iv) The buoyant force on a body is always equal to the weight of the body.

(g) A piece of wood floats on water. The buoyant force on wood will be :

(i) zero

(ii) more than the weight of the wood piece

(iii) equal to the weight of the wood piece.

(iv)less than the weight of the wood piece.

(h) The weight of a body is more than the buoyant force experienced by it, due to a liquid. The body will :

(ii) float with its some part outside the liquid

(iii) float just below the surface of liquid

(iv) float with whole of its volume above the surface of liquid.
