Question

When you float an ice cube in water, you notice that 90% of it is submerged beneath the surface. Now suppose you put the same ice cube in a glass of some liquid whose density is less than that of water.

  • Answer:

    option c

    Explanation:

    90% of the body is submerged in water.

    Now it is immersed in an unknown liquid whose density is less than the density of water.

    Buoyant force acting on the body depends on the volume immersed, density of liquid and gravity.

    As the density of liquid is less than the density of water, so the buoyant force acting on the body by the unknown liquid is less than water. So it is submerged less than 90% in this liquid.
