A metal cube is placed in an empty vessel. When water is filled in the vessel so that the cube is completely immersed in the water,the force on the bottom of the vessel in contact with the cube (A) will increase (B)will decrease (C)will remain same (D) will become zero
The Attempt at a Solution
Well, I think it should stay the same, because initially, the force of cube and force due to atm pressure is acting on the bottom, so when water is added the block would displace some water, due to which the increase in force(due to increase in water column by the cube) will be balanced by the upthrust on block, so the overall resultant will stay the same.(atm pressure+pressure of block). Am i correct?
You can ask me for clarifications regarding my attempt, if you find it unclear.
