* -------------------------------------------------
Sophomore students from Occupational Therapy in De La Salle Health Sciences Institute had conducted an experiment concerning Archimedes’ Principle to determine the density of solids and liquids using Archimedes’ Principle. For the density of solids, they had made use of spring balance to measure the mass of the metal samples, which were tied via string, in air and when immersed inside a 2000mL beaker, where H2O lies. They had computed the density of each sample metal using the formula: ϱs = maϱw / ma - mw and computed a percentage error. As for the density of liquids, they had filled a graduated cylinder with 250mL liquid sample and had immersed a hydrometer. They had immersed a sample metal in the liquid sample and had measured its mass in air and beneath the liquid. They also had measured the volume of displaced liquid as the metal sample is immersed in the liquid and had computed the density using the formula: ϱL = WaWL / gV, and the percentage error after. They had been successful to support the theory of Archimedes and had came up with percentage error ranging from 5.76% to 9.91%.

Introduction:
Tradition tells us that the king was suspicious about the purity of the gold in his crown and asked Archimedes to find a way to determine if it was the real thing. Solving the problem seemed to be impossible because in those days (3rd century B.C.) nothing was known about chemical analysis. One day Archimedes was thinking about the problem while taking a bath. As he lay floating in the bathtub he thought about his "weightless" body. Suddenly he realized that all bodies "lose" a little weight when placed in water, and the...

...Archimedes’ Principle
Abstract
The purpose of this experiment was to investigate the Archimedes’ Principle for objects of different densities and use the principle to determine the density of a golf ball. The weight of rubber stopper and the wood cube were measured in the air by using the force sensor. When the objects were submerged in the water, the apparent weight of the objects was measure with the...

Archimedes’ & Pascal’s Principle
Purpose
In this lab, we will prove Archimedes’ Principle by finding the density of a Metal Cylinder, a cork, and an unknown fluid by using Archimedes’ Principle. We will also use the PASCO Pascal’s Principle Lab Setup to investigate the use of fluid pressure as a hydraulic system to do work and we will find its mechanical...

Archimedesprinciple
Objective:
To use ArchimedesPrinciple to determine the density of an object more dense than water.
Introduction:
Archimedes' principle is a law of physics stating that the upward force (buoyancy) exerted on a body immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the amount of fluid the body displaces. In other words, an immersed object is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight...

Abstract
An experiment was designed and conducted to confirm Archimedes’ theory which states that an object will float in water providing its mass is equal to or less than the volume of water it displaces. The second objective of the experiment was to produce a value for water density.
It was expected that when additional mass was added to a floating vessel, it would displace more fluid and the increasing submerged volume...

...Archimedes' principle indicates that the upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces. Archimedes' principle is a law of physics fundamental to fluid mechanics. Archimedes of Syracuse[1] formulated this principle, which bears his name.
Practically seen, the Archimedes...

...Applications of Archimedes' Principle
1. Submarine:
A submarine has a large ballast tank, which is used to control its position and depth from the surface of the sea.
A submarine submerges by letting water into the ballast tank so that its weight becomes greater than the buoyant force (and vice versa). It floats by reducing water in the ballast tank.-thus its weight is less than the buoyant force.
2. Hot-air balloon
The atmosphere is filled with air...

ARCHIMEDES’ PRINCIPLE AND SPECIFIC DENSITY
GOAL: To investigate buoyant force and Archimedes’ principle. To measure the specific density of several materials. INTRODUCTION: Try pushing down on a basketball in water and you feel the buoyant force that makes the ball float. As more of the ball is pushed beneath the water, the upward force becomes greater. One could make a first guess (Hypothesis...
