Calculate the buoyant force on a solid object made of copper and having a volume of 0.2 m^3 if it is submerged in water.

## Homework Equations

B = pVg

## The Attempt at a Solution

I followed the above equation and did

B = (8.92 x 10^3 kg/m^3)(0.2 m^3)(9.8 m/s^2)

B = 1.74 x 10^4

The correct answer is 1.96 x 10^3
