Question

Q4. Figure 2 shows a buoy that consists of a wooden pole 0.25 m in diameter and 2 m long with a spherical weight at the bottom. The specific gravity

of the wood is 0.62, and the specific gravity of the bottom weight is 1.40. Determine (a) how much of the wooden pole is submerged in the water, (b) the distance to the center of buoyancy from the water level, (c) the distance to the center of gravity from the water level, and (d) the metacentric height.
