(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In the future, astronauts living on the moon will have baths in their accommodation. When using them, will they float higher in the water than on earth? Explain fully the reasoning behind your answer.

2. Relevant equations

Achimedes Buoyancy

3. The attempt at a solution

See, I know roughly what I need to do, but I can't find a formula that expresses Archimedes Buoyancy principle. I know it is upthrust force is equal to something like volume of water displaced, thus:

[tex] F = mg = volume [/tex]

but this is not right, since one side is Newtons, the other m^3

I know that I need this formula, and that the force will change because the difference in gravity (from f = mg), but I just can't seem to see a formula. Any Ideas?

Thanks,

TFM
