Homework Help: Archimede's principle problem

  1. Jul 10, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    no variable. it give the information about hydrometer>> A hydrometer is to be constructed with a cylindrical floating rod. Nine fiduciary marks are to be placed along the rod to indicate densities of 0.98 g/cm3, 1.00 g/cm3 ,1.02 g/cm3, 1.04 g/cm3, . . . 1.14 g/cm3 . the row of marks is to start 0.200 cm from the top end of the rod and end 1.80 cm. from the top end

    2. Relevant equations
    no equation.it ask about
    1. What is the required length of the rod?
    2. What must be its average density ?
    3. Should the marks be equally spaced ?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    for 1. question >> the length of the rod required to the liquid in that hedrometer or required to what it use for(what it need to measure)
    for 2. question >> its everage density up to what inside that hydrometer or all of them have the same density.
    for 3. question >> I don't know.
