hi, i have an irregular object submerged in water . i would like to verify if i've understood the forces that act on this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

sides A & F - downward force due to weight of water above objects

sides E & D - left nad right force - neutralizing each other

sides B & C - upward buoyancy force

how do sides B & F affect the buoyancy of the object? if it were a regular cube i would understand,

what bothers me is how much downward pressure does the volume of water trapped between B & F exert if side B is 10" and side F is 10.2". the height of the water column between B&F is 1". the distance from A to B is 12".

the depth that the cube is submerged is 30feet.

thanks

# Is this correct (buoyabcy forces - irregular object)?
