# Archimedes Principle - Example 5

Example 5
The density and mass of a metal block are 5.0×103 kg m-3 and 4.0kg respectively. Find the upthrust that act on the metal block when it is fully immerse in water.
[ Density of water = 1000 kgm-3 ]

$V= m ρ = 4 5.0× 10 3 =0.0008 m 3$
$F=ρVg F=(1000)(0.0008)(10)=8N$
