When a chunk of iron is completely submerged into a cylindrical tank of water, the water rises 6 inches. The diameter of the tank is 18 inches. What is the volume of the chunk of iron?

Solution Preview

As the chunk is submerged in water it requires space equal to its volume and hence displacing water equal to its volume, ...

Solution Summary

The rise in the water level of a tank is given, the volume of the steel chunk submerged is calculated.

... Hence. Volume of displaced water = Volume of the block = Mass / density = m/d. ... Hence. Volume of displaced water = Volume of the block = Mass / density = m/d. ...

... The buoyant force = volume of cube * density of water (fluid displaced). ... The buoyant force = volume of cube * density of water (fluid displaced). ...

... 0.1 ft = 8 x 12 x 0.6 x 12 x 0.1 x 12 cubic inch = 829.44 in^3 = 13602.8 cm^3 ..... 1 in^3 = 16.4 cm^3 ) Volume of water displaced = 13603 cm^3 Mass of ...

... replacing the mass with 100g, given the calculated density we got for #4, and calculating, this time, for the volume of water that this object would displace. ...

... The slop of the displacement time graph is giving velocity and the velocity of the particle is increases as it is ... The volume of the water coming out per ...

... mL of O2 is collected by displacement of water at a barometric pressure ... The vapor pressure of water is 23.8 mm Hg at 25.0°C ... What volume of H2 is produced at 860 ...

... We now claim that we can calculate the volume of water displaced by the buoy by using the equation (1/) and (7/). Moreover we also claim that the volume of ...

... Reason : Buoyant force is dependent on the volume of water displaced by the beam. Since both beam are identical, they both displaced equal volumes of water. ...
