An object is suspended from the bottom end of a spring. With the object in air, the spring exerts upward force Wa= 30 nt. With the object immersed in water, the spring exerts upward force Ww= 20 nt. With the object immersed in Liquid X, the spring exerts upward force Wx= 24 nt.
See ATTACHMENT for a diagram.
Find the density of Liquid X.
Any object in equilibrium must satisfy 'net vertical force = 0'.
When an object wholly or partially submerged in a liquid, the liquid exerts an upward force on the object. ...
The solution assists with finding the density of liquid X.
