### Question

A box, when hung from a spring balance shows a reading of 50 kg. If the same box is hung from the same spring balance inside an evacuated chamber, the reading on the scale will be.

### Choices

Choice (4) Response

a.

More than 50 kg because the atmospheric buoyancy force will be absent

b.

50 kg because the effect of the absence of the atmosphere will be identical on the box and the spring balance

c.

50 kg because the mass of the box remains unchanged

d.

Less than 50 kg because the weight of the column of air on the box will be absent
