If in a container full of water we place a ball of mass M and mass of water + container is m then what will be the weight measured by weighing machine if
A) the ball is completely immersed in water
B) ball is sinking but is held by a string from touching bottom
C) ball is half immersed
It might sound like a homework question but these questions popped in my head genuinely during a discussion and now my mind is highly confused whether when we should we consider buoyancy and so on..
