Question 17 Exercise 5A

A body held completely immersed inside a liquid experiences two forces:

(i) F1, the force due to gravity, and

(ii) F2, the buoyant force. Draw a diagram showing the direction of these forces backing on the body and state the conditions when the body will float or sink.


The body floats if F1 is lesser than F2 or if both are equal. The body sinks if F1 is greater than F2
