In this lab, the buoyant force on an object is measured by taking the difference between the object's weight in air, and its apparent weight in water. This measured buoyant force is compared to the theoretical value calculated using the object's volume, and Archimedes' Principle.
Several objects of different shapes are examined: Some of the objects have the same density, some have the same volume, and some have the same mass. The dependence of the buoyant force on density, mass, volume and shape is explored.PreviewDownload
