Question 25 Exercise 5C

A body of weight W is floating in a liquid. Its apparent weight will be:

(a) Equal to W

(b) Less than W

(c) Greater than W

(d) Zero


(d) Zero

If weight W and upthrust acting on a body are equal, the body floats and hence it's apparent weight will be zero

"hello everyone welcome to lido learning i'm good preet your science tutor today's question is a body of weight w is floating in a liquid its apparent weight will be a equal to weight b less than weight c greater than weight and d zero so in this question the four options have been given to you and you have to tell which is best for the apparent weight okay we know when the body is floating when the body is floating the weight w is equals to upthrust acting on the body these both are equal so the apparent weight becomes zero so the correct option for this is option d that is 0 hence your answer is option d zero for more such videos please subscribe leader learning and for any doubts drop a comment thank you"
