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

Iceberg area: 3.10x10^4 km^2, Flat top and bottom.

Submerged part .84 km.

Water density: 1.035x10^3

what is the buoyant force acting on the iceberg?

2. Relevant equations

Fb=Fg pf object of subject = P0V0g

PfVfg=Weight of displaced fluid=p0v0g=weight of object

Vu=v0-vf=v0-(p0v0g/pfg)=v0(1-(po/pf)

I have spend now over 2 hours trying to solve this problem, but no success... Can any help me solve it... driving me crazy..

Thanks in advance..
