So you have a cylinder filled with water sitting on a scale. You take a steel ball and drop it in the water. So does the weight on the scale:
1)Immediately change and stay constant including when the ball comes to rest on the bottom
2)Increase immediately when the ball is fully submerged and then increase again when it hits the bottom.
3)Some thing else?
Fb=Weight of water displaced
The Attempt at a Solution
I'm thinking that the weight stays constant the whole once its fully submerged.
