# A solid body weighs 2.10 N in air.  Its relative density is 8.4.  How much will the body weigh if placed(i) in water(ii) in a liquid of relative density 1.2?

Asked by Topperlearning User 4th June 2014, 1:23 PM

Given : Weight of the body in air W = 2.10 N, R.D of body = 8.4, weight of the body in water W1 = ?

R.D =

Therefore 8.4 =

or 8.4 (2.1 - ) = 2.1 or

Thus weight of body in water = 1.85 N

(ii) Upthrust due to water =

Upthrust due to liquid = Upthrust due to water R.D of liquid

=0.25 1.2 = 0.30 N

Therefore, Weight of the body in liquid = Weight of the body in air - Upthrust due to liquid

= 2.10 - 0.30 = 1.8 N
