# A wooden cube of side 10 cm has a mass of 700 g. It floats in water with :

A. half of its volume underwater

B. 3 cm above the water

C. 7 cm above the water surface

D. just inside the water surface

Answer :

The cube displaces water equal to its weight. When it immerses 7 cm, the volume of water displaced is 10x10x7 cm^{3} which is 700 cm^{3}. The weight of displaced is 700 g. Thus, the cube starts floating.

Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - PhysicsAn object weighs 10 N in air. When immersed fully in a liquid, it weighs only 8 N. The weight of liquid displaced by the object will be:

A. 2 N B. 8 N

C. 10 N D. 12 N

Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - PhysicsFor balls, A, B, C and D displace 10 mL, 24 mL, 15 mL and 12 mL of a liquid respectively, when immersed completely. The ball which will undergo the maximum apparent loss in weight will be:

A. A

B. B

C. C

D. D

Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - PhysicsTwo different bodies are completely immersed in water and undergo the same loss in weight. Is it necessary that their weights in air should also be the same? Explain.
