# Archimedes Principle Find the Specific Gravity of a Floating Ball

Question

A floating ball has a specific gravity of 0.6 and has a radius of 5.5cm. You are asked to find the depth to which the ball is submerged when floating in water. The equation that gives the depth (m) to which the ball is submerged under water is given by x3– 0.165x2 + 3.993 × 10-3 = 0. Derive this equation employing the Archimedes principle

Summary

The question belongs to Statistics and the question is about finding the specific gravity of a ball submerged in water. Using Archimedes principle an equation has to be derived.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
