Homework Statement


a jar containing an iron block was floating on water in a bigger container. the block was taken out and put into water. as a result, the level of water in the container will
(a)rise
(b)fall
(c)remains the same
(d)rise or fall depending on the mass of block

The Attempt at a Solution



the first case is the case of floating body. then weight of fluid displaced will be equal to the weight of the floating body. but in the second case body is immersed in fluid. so should there we consider apparent weight?

What you need to figure out is which situation displaces more water?
