- If I placed a anti-symmetric object in water, and if it floats,is it possible for it to move left or right due to a force imbalance in calculating [tex] \int p * \vec{dA} [/tex].
- I know that if the object is a closed surface, we can apply the divergence theorem and because we also know how pressure changes with position ([itex]\rho g z [/itex]), we can prove that the resultant force can only be in the z direction.
