I am trying to work through some example problems from Schaum's Outlines: Differential Equations.
I'm not sure how to come up with the solution and need help.
Based on the attached file the question is:
Find an expression for the motion of the cylinder described in previous problem if it is disturbed from its equilibrium position by submerging an additional 2 inches of height below the water line and with a velocity of 1 ft/sec in the downward direction.
Hello and thank you for posting your question to Brainmass.
The solution is attached below in ...
The expert examines equilibrium position of a floating cylinder for buoyancy.
