You have a balance beam, the kind of scales that tips from one side to the other, depending on the weight on each side. 10 kg of the iron-nails balanced on the scales by iron weights. The balance beam submerged in water. Are the scales in balance?
Solution. Posted on Friday, November 21, 2014.
The 10 kg of the iron-nails occupy the same volume as the 10 kg of the iron weights. The Archimedes Force will be the same for both iron-nails and iron weights. In conclusion, the scales are in balance.
