Question 1  A 589-gram piece of metal (specific gravity = 8) is suspended from a spring scale and then submerged in water as shown in the picture below. What force does the spring scale read?  omit
Question 2  A 10 cm-thick block of ice, having a density of = 0.92 x 103 kg/m3, will be submerged in an ocean, having a density of = 1.03 x 103 kg/m3. If you assume that there is little to no thermal exchange, how much of the ice will be submerged? omit
Question 3  In the figure shown below, a box of dimensions of x = 10 cm, y = 6.51 cm, and z = 11 cm rests on the bottom of a tank. The tank filled to depth D = 40 cm with water. If the tank is open to the atmosphere, what is the force on the (shaded) top of the box?  omit
Question 4  If the density of granite is 2.1 x 103 kg/m3, how much pressure would a solid cylindrical pillar having a radius 25 cm and a height of 130.2 cm exert on the ground? omit
Question 5   In the pipe shown below, which carries water, the flow speed at point X, which has a diameter of 4 cm, is 10 m/s. What is the flow speed at point Y if it has a diameter of 8.4 cm?  omit
Question 6  Water flows out of a 2.1-meter tall cylinder through an open pipe, as shown below. At what horizontal distance from the base of the cylinder will the water stream strike the ground? omit
Question 7  An underground pipe carries water of density 1000 kg/m3 to a fountain at ground level, as shown below. At point A, 0.589 meters below ground level, the pipe has a cross-sectional area of 1 x 10-4 m2. At ground level, the pipe has a cross-sectional area of 0.431 x 10-4 m2. If the water leaves the pipe at point B at a speed of 10 m/sec, what is the speed of the water at point A? omit
Question 8  What is the maximum height above the ground that the water reaches upon leaving the pipe vertically at ground level, assuming air resistance is negligible
