An 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
Since, Archimedes’ Principle states that the upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces and acts in the upward direction.
