Buoyancy + Force +Pressure!

A solid sphere of radius rr is floating at the interface of two immiscible liquids of densities ρ1\rho_1 and ρ2\rho_2 where ρ2>ρ1\rho_2 >\rho_1 , half of its volume lying in each zone. The height of the upper liquid column from the interface of the two liquids is hh.

Find the force exerted on the sphere by contact with the upper liquid layer.


  • atmospheric pressure = p0p_0
  • acceleration due to gravity is gg
