Provides direct volume measurements for materials that displace the liquid for buoyancy experiments.
- 1x Can only
This aluminum Overflow Can provides direct volume measurements for the materials supplied in the Density Set, as well as displacement measurements for buoyancy experiments. It has a 76 mm diameter, a usable volume of 477 cm3, and an angled downspout. Requires a graduated cylinder or a gram balance to measure the displaced volume.

This lab helps students demonstrate that density is an intensive property of a substance and is independent of the shape or size of an object.
In this lab, students use a high-resolution force sensor to measure the buoyant force on a metal cylinder lowered into a fluid and then determine the relationship between the buoyant force on a submerged object and a) its volume...
Students use the Smart Cart force sensor to measure the buoyant force on a metal cylinder lowered into a fluid and then determine the relationship between the buoyant force on a submerged object and a) its volume and b) the weight...
In this lab, students will use force sensors to explore the relationship between the volume of fluid displaced by a submerged object and the buoyant force experienced by that submerged object.
