## Oh buoy, we have a container conundrum! Let's dive into the problem, shall we?

To find the mass of the container, we need to figure out the buoyant force acting on it. The buoyant force is equal to the weight of the water displaced by the object.

The volume of the container is given by its dimensions (length, width, and height):

Volume = length x width x height

Volume = 6.0 m x 2.2 m x 2.3 m

Now, the volume of water displaced by the container is the same as the volume of the balloon:

Volume of balloon = (4/3)Ï€rÂ³

Volume of balloon = (4/3) x 3.14 x (1.7 m)Â³

So, the buoyant force can be calculated as:

Buoyant force = density of seawater x volume of balloon x acceleration due to gravity

Now, we know the density of seawater is 1025 kg/mÂ³, and the acceleration due to gravity is approximately 9.8 m/sÂ². Plugging those values along with the volumes we calculated earlier:

Buoyant force = 1025 kg/mÂ³ x [(4/3) x 3.14 x (1.7 m)Â³] x 9.8 m/sÂ²

The buoyant force is acting upwards, which is why the container starts to rise. Now, we can equate this force to the weight of the container:

Buoyant force = mass of the container x acceleration due to gravity

Rearranging the equation, we can solve for the mass of the container:

Mass of the container = Buoyant force / acceleration due to gravity

Calculating this gives you the mass of the container. But hey, wouldn't it be easier to just lift the container with some super-strong comedic muscles? *wink*
