It is equal to the weight of the water displaced I believe.

There are two forces acting on the cylinder at any given time:

(1) The downward force of gravity

(2) The buoyancy force (pressure) exerted by the water

Find a mathematical expression for the net force on the cylinder when it is displaced from equilibrium by a distance [itex]y[/itex]

But how can I form an equation of motion from this?

Newton's 2nd Law maybe?
