Theory of Archimedes' Principle Experiment General Aim

Determining the relative density or specific gravity (SG) of solid and liquids using Archimedes’ Principle. 

Theory of Archimedes' Principle Experiment.. Method

Weighing method.

Learning Objectives | Archimedes' Principle of Buoyancy Experiment

  • Understanding the concept of Archimedes principle and the physics behind buoyancy force.

  • Set up an experiment to determine the specific gravity of a solid or a liquid. Hence, the material can be identified.

Archimedes’ Principle Experiment.. Theoretical Background

Buoyancy is an upward force (FB) exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of an immersed object. Archimedes’ Principle states that if a body is immersed in a liquid, it will be acted upon by upward force equal to the weight of the displaced liquid.

Principle| Archimedes' Principle of Buoyancy Virtual Experiment

Weighing a body in air, water and a liquid, will enable us to determine the specific gravity of the body and the liquid through simple relations that are based on Archimedes’ principle.
