I may be completely out of whack here but this kept me up last night.... Suppose a cork from a wine bottle is taken down to a depth of X metres. Since cork is less dense than water it will obviously float to the surface. I was thinking about manipulating the formulae. Buoyancy force = Vρg Pressure = Force/Area [itex]\Rightarrow[/itex] Force = ρghA Is there a point in the liquid where ρghA = Vρg and the cork remains stationary. hA = V My physics teacher said I am completely off track (I'm beginning to agree with her because it's extremely non intuitive) but never gave me a real reason as to why.... Any help appreciated, thanks.
