1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An object weighing 5.0 Newtons displaces a certain volume of water when dropped into a large beaker of water. The weight of the displaced water is 3.5 Newtons. The object is free to sink or float. What would be the value of the bouyant force is another object twice the volume, but having the same weight, was droppen into the large beaker of water? The object is free to sink or float I believe the bouyant force is 3.5 Newtons, judging from Archimedes' Principle which states that "an object immersed in a fluid experiences a bouyant force equal to the weight of the water displaced." I'm not sure if this is correct, going by volume and not weight.
