A block of wood is held in water, totally immersed, by a string attached to a pont in the base of the tank.
Calculation of range of jet stream flowing out of a tank.
Please see the attachment.

Q1: (a) Let the volume of the wood be V m^3
Weight of wood = V*669 Kg
= V*669*9.8 N
Voume of water displaed = V m^3
Weight of water dispaled = V*1000*9.8 N
= Buoyant force
In equilibrium:

Buoyant force - weight of wood = Tension
V*1000*9.8 - V*669*9.8 = 0.92
V(1000 - 669)*9.8 = 0.92
V = 0.92/(331*9.8
= 0.0002836 m^3
= 2.836*10^-4 m^3

(b) If the string breaks, block will rise to the surface and starts floating, let us say with voume V' outside water surface.

V - V' = voume of block under water
While floating :
Upthrust = ...

Solution Summary

The solution shows the connection of buoyant force and weight of a body that is held in equilibrium by a string attached to a point in the base of the water container and the tension in the string. The Archimedes' principle and the law of flotation has been used to reach the required answer.
In the second question in the attachment the range of the water jet has been found by application of Bernoulli's principle.

An object falls off of a pier and into the ocean (sea water) where it displaces a total volume of 3.8 cubic meters of sea water. What is the buoyant force acting on the object in newtons? You will need to use the mass density form of the buoyant force equation in order to work the problem in the mks system.

An undersea research chamber is spherical with an external diameter of 5.40 m. The mass of the chamber, when occupied, is 70400 kg. It is anchored to the sea bottom by a cable. Calculate the following.

A balloon is descending with a constant acceleration "a" less than 'g' weight of the balloon with the basket and the contents is W. What weight m of the basket should be released so that the balloon will begin to accelerate upwards with constant acceleration 'a' ? Neglect air resistance.

Derive an expression for the buoyant force on a spherical balloon, submerged in water, as a function of the depth below the surface, the volume of the balloon at the surface, the pressure at the surface, and the density of the water. At what depth is the buoyant force half the surface value?
I know that the Buoyant force is

1) a) Find the angle required to maximize the range down an incline which is pitched at an angle of −θ with respect to the horizontal and the projectile is shot an angle of φ above the incline at a speed of v0 .

A stone of density 5g/cm^3 completely immersed in sea water is allowed to sink from rest. Calculate the depth to which the stone would sink in two seconds. Neglect effect of friction. Relative density of sea water = 1.025 and g = 980cm/s^2

Scientists are experimenting with a kind of gun that may eventually be used to fire payloads directly into orbit. In one test, this gun accelerates a 5.0-kg projectile from rest to a speed of 4.0 x 10^3 m/s^2. The net force accelerating the projectile is 4.9 x 10^5 N. How much time is required for the projectile to come up to sp
