A body is just floating in a liquid ( their densities are equal ). What will happen to the body if it is slightly pressed and released ? Why ?

Dear student,

Assuming Archimedes' principle to be reformulated as follows,

\mbox{apparent immersed weight} = \mbox{weight} - \mbox{weight of displaced fluid}\,

then inserted into the quotient of weights, which has been expanded by the mutual volume

 \frac { \mbox{density}} { \mbox {density of fluid} } = \frac { \mbox{weight}} { \mbox {weight of displaced fluid} } \,,

yields the formula below. The density of the immersed object relative to the density of the fluid can easily be calculated without measuring any volumes:

 \frac { \mbox {density of object}} { \mbox {density of fluid} } = \frac { \mbox {weight}} { \mbox {weight} - \mbox {apparent immersed weight}}\,
