# A level Physics Homework Help watch

1. A block of stone of mass 132 kg hangs from a cord and is completely immersed in water. Calculate the tension in the cord. Assume density of stone = 3.0 x10^3 kg m^-3
2. Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

3. W=mg ? To give tension
4. Moved to Physics
5. There's gonna be a force of upthrust due to the body being immersed in water. Use volume=mass/density to find this force of upthrust (its the weight of the water displaced) and hence you can work out the tension. Draw a free body force diagram if you need to visualise the forces.
