1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If you have ever had to wade across a rocky creek while hiking in the mountains, you have probably noticed that by the time you get to the deep water in the center of the creek rocks don't seem to hurt your bare feet as much. what is the reason for this? a. one tend to stand on tiptoe in deep water, thereby reducing the area of the foot in contact with the rocks b. the greater pressure on one's feet in deep water means the rocks cannot dig in so much c. deeper water is colder, and hence more dense, than shallow water d. one experience a greater bouyant foce in deeper water e. the velocity of the water is less in deep region than in shallow regions 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I think the corect selection is either choice B or D. I am leaning towards B because I think the bouyant force is the same no matter how deep the water is.
