Question

A cylindrical can of height h and base area S is immersed in water to a depth h0 in figure. A small hole of area s appears in the bottom of the can. Determine how quickly the can sinks.

                                                                                                         

Solution

Correct option is

 

The level of water in the can will rise as much as the can sinks

in the water.
