A steel hammer (mh = 790 grams) is tied to a string which is hung from a force meter. A container of water (mw = 5 kg) sits on a scale. The hammer is lowered completely into the water but it does not touch the bottom.
Assume the density of steel is 7.9 g/cm3 and the density of water is 1.0 g/cm3. The acceleration due to gravity is 10 m/s2.
What does the force meter read?
