Hi. Can someone please walk me through how to do the following problem?

A person with a mass of 81 kg and a volume of 0.089 m^3 floats quietly in water.

(a) What is the volume of the person that is above water?
(b) If an upward force F is applied to the person, the volume above water increases by 0.0018 m^3. Find the force F.

Archimedes' Principle, Euler's Equations & Hydrostatic Pressure

Recall the standard vector identity: {see attachment}.

? A body is immersed in water at rest, under gravity. Show from Euler's equations that the pressure is: {see attachment}

(Hydrostatic pressure)

? Deduce that the buoyancy force on the body is equal to the weight of water displaced by it.
? A boat floats on a pond. A crew member carefully lowers a wooden oar into the pond. What happens to the water level in the pond? What about the waterline of the boat?
? The crew member now gently drops the anchor from the boat into the pond. What happens to the water levels now?
