To hold up a certain stationary iron anchor in air takes 200 newtons more than when it is submerged in fresh water. The density of iron is Di=7870 kg/m^3, and by definition, the density of fresh water is Dw=1000 kg/m^3.

Find the weight W, of the anchor in air.

Solution Summary

With explanations and calculations, the problem is solved. The solution determines the weight of the anchor in the air.

Solution Preview

Step 1.
Recall that density of iron is mass per volume, Di= M/V and weight is mass times gravity field, W= M g. Combining these, we write:
(1) W = Di V g which can be seen from Fig. 1 of ...
