Question

# Two non-mixing liquids of densities ρ and nρ (n>1) are put in a container. The height of each liquid is h. A solid cylinder of length L and density d is put in this container. The cylinder floats with its axis vertical and length pL (p<1) in the denser liquid. The density d is equal to:

A
[1+(n+1)p]ρ

Solution

## The correct option is D [1+(n−1)p]ρ As we know, Weight of the wooden block W=Vdg=ALdg where A is the cross section area of the cylinder Using Archimedes' principle, Weight of wooden block = Upthrust due to liquid of density nρ + Upthrust due to liquid of density ρ ALdg=(pL)A(nρ)g+(1−p)LAρg ⇒ d=(1−p)ρ+pnρ=[1+(n−1)p]ρ
