(II) An undersea research chamber is spherical with an external diameter of 5.20 m. The mass of the chamber, when occupied, is 74,400 kg. It is anchored to the sea bottom by a cable. What is (a) the buoyant force on the chamber, and (b) the tension in the cable?
The research chamber undersea attached to the cable outside, is experiencing a buoyancy force in the upward direction, we have determine the magnitude of the buoyant force on the chamber and the tension in the attached cable.
Step 1 of 4</p>
Archimedes Principle: The buoyancy force acting on the body, whose volume is immersed inside the water of density, is given as
Step 2 of 4</p>
A] Buoyant force on the chamber
Density of water
Radius of the chamber
Mass of the chamber
As the whole chamber is inside the water, therefore, using relation (1) the buoyancy force acting on it is,
Thus the buoyancy force acting on the chamber is .
