A body held completely immersed inside a liquid experiences two forces:
(i) F1, the force due to gravity and
(ii) F2, the buoyant force.
Draw a diagram showing the direction of these forces acting on the body and state the condition when the body will float or sink.
A body of density ρ is immersed in a liquid of density ρL. State the condition when the body will (i) float and (ii) sink in the liquid.
