###### Problem Details

A cube of side s is completely submerged in a pool of fresh water. After drawing a free-body diagram, derive an algebraic expression for the net force on the cube.

a. ΣF_{y} = P_{fluid}gs - M_{cube}g

b. ΣF_{y} = P_{fluid}gs^{3} - M_{cube}g

c.. ΣF_{y} = P_{cube}gs^{3} - M_{fluid}g

d. ΣF_{y} = P_{fluid}gs^{3}
