Buoyancy & Buoyant Force Video Lessons

Concept

# Problem: A fishbowl contains a single goldfish and is filled with water to the level indicated.At each of the designated points, rotate the given vector to indicate the direction of the force exerted by the water on either the inside of the fishbowl (for points A and B)or the outside of the goldfish (for points C, D,and E).

###### FREE Expert Solution

The force exerted by the water in the bowl is experienced in every surface it touches.

The surfaces of contact with the water are the fish and the bowl.

This makes it to exert force on all points, A, B, C, D, and E. However, the direction of the force is different for every point.

The goldfish experiences a buoyant force in the upward direction due to water. This makes the direction of force at point D to be upward.
