a) The EOM (equation of motion) for the rubber duck can be derived using Newton's second law of motion which states that the net force acting on an object is equal to the product of its mass and acceleration. In this case, the forces acting on the duck are gravity (weight) and buoyancy, so we can write:

Weight = mg Buoyancy = ρwater A submerged depth y g

where m is the mass of the duck, g is the gravitational acceleration, ρwater is the density of water, A is the cross-sectional area of the duck, and y is how deep the duck is submerged in the water.

Since the duck is floating, the weight and buoyancy forces are equal in magnitude, so we can set them equal to each other:

mg = ρwater A y g

Canceling out the g terms, we get:

m = ρwater A y

Solving for y, we get:

y = m/(ρwater A)

Substituting the given values, we get:

y = 55 g/(1000 kg/m^3 * 0.0032 m^2) = 0.017 m = 1.7 cm

Therefore, the duck is submerged 1.7 cm deep in the water.

b) The natural frequency of the duck can be calculated using the formula:

ω = √(k/m)

where ω is the natural frequency, k is the spring constant, and m is the mass of the duck. In this case, the buoyancy force acts as a spring, so we can calculate the spring constant using Hooke's law:

F = kx

where F is the buoyancy force, x is the displacement from the equilibrium position (i.e., the depth the duck is submerged), and k is the spring constant.

Since the buoyancy force is proportional to the submerged depth y, we can write:

F = ρwater A yg

Substituting the value of y, we get:

F = ρwater A (m/(ρwater A)) g = mg

Therefore, the spring constant is k = mg/y.

Substituting the given values, we get:

k = (55 g)(9.81 m/s^2)/(0.017 m) ≈ 3.0 N/m

Substituting the values of k and m into the formula for natural frequency, we get:

ω = √(3.0 N/m)/(55 g) ≈ 0.09 Hz

Therefore, the duck's natural frequency is \approx imately 0.09 Hz.
