You push a piece of wood under the surface of a swimming pool. After it is completely submerged, you keep pushing it deeper and deeper. As you do this, what will happen to the buoyant force on it? Will the force keep increasing, stay the same, or decrease? Why?
Solution 14DQ Introduction We have to discuss what will happen to the buoyant force to a wooden block after it is submerged completely. Step 1 The force will stay same. The buoyant is equal to the weight of the water displaced by the object that is submerged into the water. Now after the wooden block is completely submerged into the water, the water displaced by the wooden block will not change and hence the buoyant force will not change and will remain same.
