Why does a block of plastic released under water come up to the surface of water?
When an plastic is immersed in water, there are two forces acting upon it
- Gravitational force in downward direction
- Buoyant force in upward direction
In this case,
the buoyant force on plastic is more than the gravitational force.
Thus, plastic will come up to the surface of water.
