    MC = Multiple Choice Question, CQ = Conceptual Question, and IE = Integrated Exercise. Throughout the text,

    many exercise sections will include “paired” exercises. These exercise pairs, identified with red numbers, are

    intended to assist you in problem solving and learning. In a pair, the first exercise (even numbered) is worked out in the Study Guide so that you can consult it should you need assistance in solving it. The second exercise (odd numbered) is similar in nature, and its answer is given at the back of the book.

    31.00 g/cm), the weight of the mercury displaced by half the cylinder is much greater than the water displaced

    by the other half. Then, the buoyant force on the mercury side is greater than that on the water sidemore than
