A sphere of iron and another of wood having the same radius are held under water. Which of these experiences a greater buoyant force?
Asked by | 29th Feb, 2012, 01:44: PM
Both will experience equal buoyant force because
Buoyant force = volume of liquid displaced x density of liquid x g
Since both the spheres are of same radius so the volume of liquid displaced will also be same and hence both the spheres will experience same buoyant force.
