1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The uniform 5 m-long round wooden rod (ρ = 800 kg/m3 ) is tied to the bottom by a string with length 1 m. Determine the inclination angle θ if the water level is 3.5 m. What if the water level is 7m? 2. Relevant equations Fb = ρgV 3. The attempt at a solution So I'm really struggling with the conceptualization of this one. I know that Fg on rod = ρrod⋅Vrod⋅g FB = ρwater⋅Vdisplaced⋅g if the depth of the water is 1 m, then there is no y-force on the string. This means that at a water depth of 1 m, the gravitational force is equal to the buoyancy force. This means that the volume of water displaced is... ( I calculated it out )... 0.02011 m3 What, however, must I do when I begin to increase the water level?
