The volume of a 500 g sealed packet is 350 cm3 . Will the packet float or sink in water if the density of water is 1 g cm-3 ? What will be the mass of the water displaced by this packet?

##### Solution :-

Density of sealed packet = 500/350 = 1.42 g/cm3

Density of sealed packet is greater than density of water

Therefore, the packet will sink.

Considering Archimedes Principle,

Displaced water volume = Force exerted on the sealed packet.

Volume of water displaced = 350cm3

Therefore, displaced water mass = ρ x V

= 1 × 350

Mass of displaced water = 350g.
