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 and b) the weight of the fluid displaced by the submerged object.PreviewDownload

Provides direct volume measurements for materials that displace the liquid for buoyancy experiments.
The Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor simultaneously measures force, acceleration, and rotational velocity without the inconvenience of wires.
Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
