# A) An object weighs 40 g in air and has a volume of 8.0 cm3. What will be its apparent weight when immersed in water?

The weight of the object in air (a downward force) and the buoyant force (an upward force) are both components of the apparent weight in water. Therefore we will have to subtract the 2 forces.

I hope this helps, Steve

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- The gas inside of a container exerts #25 Pa# of pressure and is at a temperature of #750 ^o K#. If the temperature of the gas changes to #550 ^oK# with no change in the container's volume, what is the new pressure of the gas?
- A rock weighs 2.25 Newtons when suspended in air. In water, it appears to weigh only 1.8 Newtons. Why?
- If #18 L# of a gas at room temperature exerts a pressure of #64 kPa# on its container, what pressure will the gas exert if the container's volume changes to #24 L#?
- The gas inside of a container exerts #8 Pa# of pressure and is at a temperature of #120 ^o K#. If the pressure in the container changes to #64 Pa# with no change in the container's volume, what is the new temperature of the gas?
- The gas inside of a container exerts #3 Pa# of pressure and is at a temperature of #430 ^o K#. If the temperature of the gas changes to #120 ^oC# with no change in the container's volume, what is the new pressure of the gas?
