  • Q:

    A boat floating in water is filled with dense steel weights until the level of the water just reaches the rim so that if the boat sinks any further, it will take on water and sink. If foam balls with density less than that of water are added into the boat along with the steel weights, which of the following will happen to the boat?

     

    A

    the boat will rise out of the water slightly because the foam balls have a lower density than the water

    B

    the boat will do nothing because the foam balls have a lower density than the water

    C

    the boat will sink because the foam balls have mass

    D

    the boat will sink because the foam balls have a lower density than the water
