Why only the volume of a solid sphere placed in a fluid decreases while its shape remains the same?

Expert Answer:

When the size of the sphere is small, the pressure at all points on its surface is same. Hence, the shape remains the same.
However, when the size of the sphere is too large, the pressure at the top and the bottom are different and this might distort the sphere.
