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

Solution: A block of density ρ1 and volume V1 is submerged in a liquid of density ρL. A second block of density ρ2 and volume V2 is placed on top of the first block. The two blocks are floating in the manner shown in the figure below. Find V2 such that the two blocks are just submerged, as shown in figure above.  

Problem

A block of density ρ1 and volume V1 is submerged in a liquid of density ρL. A second block of density ρ2 and volume V2 is placed on top of the first block. The two blocks are floating in the manner shown in the figure below.

Find V2 such that the two blocks are just submerged, as shown in figure above.
