1. A plastic ball in a liquid is acted upon by its weight and by a buoyant force. The weight of the ball is 2.5
N. The buoyant force has a magnitude of 4.4 N and acts vertically upward. At a given instant, the ball is
released from rest. The acceleration of the ball at that instant, including direction, is closest to:

Zero
3.7 m/s2, downward
7.4 m/s2, upward
7.4 m/s2, downward
3.7 m/s2, upward

2. Two weights are connected by a massless wire and pulled upward with a
constant speed of 1.50 m/s by a vertical pull P. The tension in the wire is T.
For this situation:

P = T + 25 N
T>P
P + T = 125 N
P = T + 100 N
T=P
