1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A block of wood floats in a bucket filled with water. You pour some oil into the bucket. The oil floats on top of the water and that a part of the block is now in water, part is in oil, and part is in air. What happened to the volume of the block that is in air when you put in the oil? a) Stayed the same b) Decreased c) Increased 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution I don't think it increased because oil is less dense than water. I am having trouble figuring out whether the extra buoyant force from the oil is enough to cause the volume of wood in air stay the same. I think that it isn't enough and that the volume of wood in air would decrease. I also don't think staying the same would make sense because if the volume is the same, then the wood would keep rising so it can't be covered with oil and I don't think this happens because most pictures show the wood still being in water when oil is covering it. Please help, I'm confused!
