• 1.

### The _____ counteracts the force of gravity as it assists motion toward the water's surface and resists motion away from the surface.

• A.

Buoyant force

• B.

Specific gravity

• C.

Cohesive force

• D.

Bow force

• E.

Drag force

A. Buoyant force
Explanation
The buoyant force counteracts the force of gravity as it assists motion toward the water's surface and resists motion away from the surface. This force is exerted on objects submerged in a fluid and is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object. It allows objects to float and determines whether they sink or float based on their density compared to the fluid.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### Because of differences in the _____ of the body, the head and chest tend to float higher in the water than the heavier, denser extremities, making compensation with floatation devices necessary.

• A.

Buoyant force

• B.

Specific gravity

• C.

Cohesive force

• D.

Bow force

• E.

Drag force

B. Specific gravity
Explanation
Specific gravity refers to the ratio of the density of a substance to the density of a reference substance, usually water. In this context, the specific gravity of the body affects its buoyancy in water. The head and chest, which have a lower specific gravity compared to the extremities, tend to float higher in the water. This is because the buoyant force exerted on an object is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object. Therefore, to compensate for this difference in buoyancy and prevent the extremities from sinking, floatation devices are necessary.

• A.

Buoyant force

• B.

Specific gravity

• C.

Cohesive force

• D.

Bow force

• E.

Drag force

C. Cohesive force
Explanation
Cohesive force refers to the attractive force between molecules of the same substance. In the context of the given question, the cohesive force is responsible for the slight but easily overcome obstacle that runs parallel to the water surface. This could be referring to a thin layer of water molecules that stick together and create resistance or drag when moving through it.

Rate this question:

### A second force is the _____, or the force that is generated at the front of the object during movement.

• A.

Buoyant force

• B.

Specific gravity

• C.

Cohesive force

• D.

Bow force

• E.

Drag force

D. Bow force
Explanation
Bow force refers to the force that is generated at the front of an object during movement. This force is caused by the object pushing through a fluid, such as air or water, and is commonly experienced by objects like ships or airplanes. The bow force helps to push the object forward and counteract the resistance of the fluid, allowing for smoother and more efficient movement.
