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

a 6500kg iceberg is afloat in the sea. the icebergs density is 930kg/m^3 and the sea water has density of 1030kg/m^3

a) find the buoyant force on the iceberg

the volume of water displaced and the fraction of the icebergs volume that is below the waterline.

2. Relevant equations

F_B=x_displaced=rho g V

3. The attempt at a solution

i have no idea how to do this i thought that maybe since its not sinking its in equilibrium relative to something but i have no idea if thats even right or not.. thanks for any help in advance.
