    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?
