1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A sphere of radius 10.0 cm floats in equilibrium partially submerged in water with its lowest point 5.00 cm below the water's surface. (a) What is the buoyant force acting on the sphere? 2. Relevant equations F = pvg 3. The attempt at a solution F= 1000 * v * 9.8 V= 4/3*pi*(r)^3 and then I multiplied this by 1/2 because half of it is submerged. F= 1000 * 1/2(4/3*pi*(.1)^3) * 9.8 F= 202 N, but the answer is 6.42 N, so that is very wrong. Thank you!!!!
