Lecture Example 2. Image result for beaker. A patient has a mass of 60 kg and density of 960 kg.m -3 . She is supported by 4 rubber straps, each of length 1.2 m and cross-sectional area of 2×10 -4 m 2 , and is then lowered into water until 60% of her volume is under water. Given that Y rubber = 5×10 6 N.m -2 , Calculate the upthrust on the woman. Calculate the change in length of each strap caused by the immersion..
