1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 5-kg object displaces 10 kg of water. What is the force required to submerge the object? a. 24 N b. 147 N c. 98 N *d. 49 N 2. Relevant equations Buoyant Force = Weight of the Water displaced 3. The attempt at a solution Weight of the Water displaced=10kg*9.81m/s^2=98.1N If the buoyant force is 98.1N an equal or greater force must be applied to submerge the object. The answer key says its 49N...why?
