- Homework Statement
- Picture below. Both bodies are made of same material but the body placed in water had 2.4 times greater mass. What is the relationship between buoyancy Force and gravitational force between body in water and body in air?

- Relevant Equations
- F(buoyancy) = density(of fluid) * g * Volume(of object), F(gravitational) = m * g

Picture below. Both bodies are made of same material but the body placed in water had 2.4 times greater mass. What is the relationship between buoyancy Force and gravitational force between body in water and body in air?

I have no clue how to solve this.

I know that body with greater mass has 2.4 times greater buoyancy Force, 2.4 times greater mass and gr. force, 2.4 larger volume. But I don't know how to solve the problem.

The worst thing is that I only need to answer if F(buoyancy) of body in water is <, =, > than gravitational force of body in air or if there is not enough data to answer the question.

Answer at the end of textbook is F(buoyancy) of body in water > F(gravitational) of body in air.

if some can please explain I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.
