  • Q15

    A copper block is connected to a string and submerged in a container of water.

    Position1: The copper is completely submerged, but just under the surface of the water.

    Position2: The copper is completely submerged, mid-way between the water surface and the bottom of the container.

    Position3: The copper is completely submerged, but just above the bottom surface of the container.

    Assume that the water is incompressible. What is the ranking of the buoyant forces (B) acting on the copper blocks for these positions, from least to greater?

  • Q17

    Mercury inside the thermometer shows thermal expansion (thermal meaning heat). True or false?

    False, because heat doesn’t cause expansion.

    False, because the molecules don’t have kinetic energy.

    True, because when there is high temperature, the thermometer always explodes.

    True, because the molecules of mercury expand with high temperature.
