🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Abernathy's class at HU.

Solution: Two wooden boxes of equal mass but different density are held beneath the surface of a large container of water. Box A has smaller average density than box B. When the boxes are released, they accelerate upward to the surface. Which box has the greater acceleration? a. Box A b. Box B c. They are the same. d. We need to know the actual densities of the boxes in order to answer the question. e. It depends on the contents of the boxes.
