Homework Help: Iron ball hanging from a scale and suspended

  1. Aug 18, 2013 #1
    Iron ball hanging from a scale and suspended....

    Iron ball hanging from a scale and suspended in a glass of water filled to the rim, what happens to the reading of the scale, volume of water, and weight of the glass of water?

    The attempt at a solution: there's an FB that's equal to the weight of the water removed pushing on the ball upwards, then weight - FB is equal to the tension in the thread, which means weight is less, then reading is less, volume of water stays the same because the volume of the water removed is equal to the volume of the ball, weight of the glass is...i have no idea tbh!!!!!

    plz explain your answer! thx :)
