Q.1. - A block weighs 165 g in air and 130 g in water. Calculate the volume and specific gravity.
Let the volume of block be V
By Archimede's principle,
mass of object in air - apparent mass when submergerd in water = density of water x volume of object
165 g - 130 g = 1 x V
V = 35 g
Specific gravity also known as relative density = density of object/density of water = mass of object in air/Volume of object/density of water
Specific gravity = 165/35/1 = 4.7

- what is density?
- When a piece of cork is put into the water it starts floating on the surface of water due to the upward buoyant force from water.
- you are provided with a piece of rock and common laboratory equipments.how will you proceed to find its density.
- what are fluids?
- What is the unit of density?
- What happens if the bouyant force of liquid is equal to or greater than or less than the solid object which is to be immersed into the liquid
- what is the relationship between boyant force and displaced water
- pressure at certain depth in river water is p1.,same depth in sea water is p2.which of following is correct? a)p1=p2 b)p1>p2 c)p1<p2 d)p1-p2=atmospheric pressure
- why is it easier for a person to swim in sea water than in fresh water?
