*Q9. A solid body of mass 150g and volume 250cm3 is put in water. Will the body float or sink.*

*Q10. A solid of density 5000kg/m3 weights 0.5 kg in air. It is completely immersed in water of density 1000kg/m3.*

*(a) Calculate the apparent weight of solid in water.(ans. 0.4 kg)*

*(b) What will be its apparent weight if water is replaced by a liquid of density 8000kg/m3? (ans. 0)*

*Q11. The mass of a block made of certain material is 13.5 kg and its volume is 15 × 10-3 m3. Will the block float or sink in water. Give reason for your answer.*

*Q12. (a) What is the density of air in NTP (b)What is the unit of relative density?*

*Q13. (a) When does a body sinks in a fluid? (b)Why does a balloon filled with hydrogen gas rise up against gravity?*

*Q14. (a) Which has greater density: 1 kg of iron or 2 kg of iron? (b)If a hollow sphere and a solid sphere are both made of the same amount of iron, which sphere has greater average density?*

*Q15. A. A body weighs 10 N in air and 8 N when fully immersed in water. How much is the buoyant force acting on the body? B. Why are the buoys making the channel in a river are hollow spheres?*

*Q16. State one important effect produced by the buoyant force exerted by water.*

*Q17. Where does a solid weigh more- in air or in a liquid?*

*Q18. Name two factors on which the buoyant force depends?*

*Q19. What is the relationship between the buoyant force on an object and the liquid displaced by it?*

*Q20. The relative density of mercury is 13.6. What does this statement mean?*

*Q21. The density of turpentine oil is 840 kg/m3. What will be its relative density?*

*Q22. Explain why big boulders can be moved easily by floods.*

*Q23. Why is a slight blow on a cork of bottle fully filled with a liquid sufficient to break the bottle?*

*Q24. Why is it easier to walk on soft sand with a flat shoe than a pencil-heeled shoe?*

*Q25. Lead has greater density than iron and both are denser than water. Is the buoyant force on a lead pencil greater than, less than or equal to the buoyant force on an iron object of same volume?*

*Q26. Why do you feel lighter when you swim?*

*Q27. Why is a bucket of water lighter when in water than when it is taken out of water?*

*Q28. Why it is easier to swim in sea water tan in river water?*

*Q29. Two different objects are completely immersed in water and undergo same loss in weight. Is it necessary that the weight of these objects in air be also the same?*

*Q30. If two equal weights of unequal volumes are balanced in air, what will happen when these are completely dipped in water?*
