    You find a job as part of a team doing oceanic research. The team is going to monitor water temperature, salinity, Ph, etc. To do this, the team is going to use an instrument package contained in a hollow, aluminum sphere. The aluminum sphere has an outer diameter of 1.00 m and a thickness of 1.00 mm. (Use 2.70 g/cc for the density of the aluminum) The aluminum sphere will be supported by a tether connected to a solid Styrofoam sphere that is also of 1.00 m diameter. (Use 300.0 kg/m3 for the density of Styrofoam)
