The density of a cubical metal box is 3500kg/m^3. If the side of the box is 1m, determine its apparent weight when it is completely immersed in water of density 1000kg/m^3

= Its weight 3500 kg - Buoyancy (1000 kg)
= 2500 kg

Since the metal box is cubical and has side length 1m. Its volume is 1 m³,
when it is completely immersed in water, it displaced 1m³ water and experience a Buoyancy of 1000 kg.
Buoyancy = upthrust
