This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

If system starts accelerating upwards,then psuedo force will act on both the boxes in downward direction.
Hence,T1 increases and T2 decreases
@Rohit Gupta,please tell me where i am wrong?

Hi @Akhil Bansal, You are missing the effect of acceleration on buoyancy!!!

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Could you please explain how pseudo force effect buoyant force in liquid.
Thankyou

- 5 years, 9 months ago

@Akhil Bansal Buoyancy depends upon effective gravity.. when the container starts accelerating in the upward direction then the water molecules at the bottom pushes the water molecules at the top and hence increases the pressure every where. It may be seen in another way that when the container is accelerated upwards then the effective weight of the liquid displaced is increased..!! Thus buoyancy also increases!!

It's a wonderful question ....

Thanks @Tushar Panda I am glad you like it..!!

Both will simply increase hence we are doing nothing but increasing the effective gravity hence everything will increase

- 5 years, 10 months ago

T1 increases and T2 decreases. Since the system is accelerating upwards, the downward acceleration on the boxes would increase, thus increasing their weight. the buoyant force due to the liquid remains constant.Thus, resulting in the (1) situation.

@Ansh Bhatt I am sry to tell you that your answer is wrong...

- 5 years, 10 months ago

The Buoyant force will also change...!!

- 5 years, 10 months ago

I'm not much of a "Fluids" guy but guess no. 1 is correct?

- 5 years, 10 months ago

I am Afraid you are wrong..But i will still love to hear you justification..

- 5 years, 10 months ago

@Rohit Gupta Two questions

1) Are the two box identical? 2) The system given above is at rest ???

- 5 years, 10 months ago

@Kalash Verma , The diagram itself suggest the necessary information needed to be known about the boxes... Secondly, A constant velocity of the container doesnot affect the tension at all..so it wont matter whether the container is at rest or has some velocity...you need to focus on acceleration and that is given!!!

- 5 years, 10 months ago

@Rohit Gupta Is the option 3 correct ? In which both T1 and T2 increases.

I have assumed that the boxes are not identical and T1 and T2 have some magnitude.If the boxes are identical then T1 = T2 = 0

- 5 years, 10 months ago

Obviously the boxes cant be identical...the upper one is denser than liquid and the one below is less dense than liquid..
option 3 is correct..
Try some justification...
It is an interesting problem...

- 5 years, 10 months ago

Justification is easy. Let d1 = density of block 1 and its Volume be v1 and d2 =density of liquid and g= downward acceleration due to gravity.

$T1=Vg(d1-d2$ now as acceleration increases downward acceleration of the block increases hence T1 increases.

- 5 years, 10 months ago

Similarly @Rohit Gupta It can be shown for box 2

- 5 years, 10 months ago

Correct...!! Well Done @Kalash Verma
