## Homework Statement

(Please refer to the attachment given)

In the figure shown, the heavy cylinder (radius R) resting on a smooth surface separates two liquids of densities [tex] 2\rho [/tex] and [tex]3\rho[/tex] . The height h for the equilibrium of cylinder must be:

[tex] a) \frac{3R}{2} [/tex]

[tex] b) R \sqrt{\frac{3}{2}} [/tex]

[tex] c) R \sqrt{2} [/tex]

[tex] d) R \sqrt{\frac{3}{4}} [/tex]

## Homework Equations

Basic Equations of hydrostatics

## The Attempt at a Solution

This Problem is a little confusing. I think we have to consider the components of the pressures at various points on the cylinder, but I am not too sure how.Besides the above question, how would the cylinder move in the given state of inequilibrium?
