# When a Boat is Partially Immersed in Water, It Displaces 600 Kg of Water. How Much is the Buoyant Force Acting on the Boat in Newtons ? (G = 10 M S-2) - CBSE Class 9 - Science

ConceptThrust and Pressure - Buoyancy

#### Question

When a boat is partially immersed in water, it displaces 600 kg of water. How much is the buoyant force acting on the boat in newtons ? (g = 10 m s-2)

#### Solution

F (force) = ?
m (mass)= 600 kg
a (acceleration due to gravity) = 10 m/s2

F = m × a
= 600 × 10
= 6,000 N
Ans: Buoyant force acting on a boat = 6,000 N.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
