Solution Summary

Forces on an immersed object and the relation ship of the immersed volume to the densities of the object and the fluid are discussed in detail using diagrams and equations in this 3-page word document. I have run the simulation to collect data. The data is presented in the form a graph as well.

Following is the text part of the solution. Please see the attached file for complete solution. Equations, diagrams, graphs and special characters will not appear correctly here. Thank you for using Brainmass.

A floating object experiences two different types of forces. One is the familiar gravitational force. Gravitational force is proportional to the mass of the object. It acts downward.

Gravitational force = mg = V d g, where

V = Volume of the object
d = Density of the object
g = Acceleration of gravity ...
