Measurement of Mass, Volume, and Density through
Archimedes Principle
Overview:
The purpose of this experiment was to measure the density of a solid and a liquid using Archimedes principle. Archimedes is one of the greatest inventors and mathematicians of all time. The principle we used in this experiment was discovered when Archimedes stepped into a full bath tub. Using Archimedes principle, we were able to determine the density of a lead rod, water, and an unknown liquid.

Equations:
Spring ConstantF=-kxThe equation was used to calculate the spring constant of spring i.| Densityρ=massvolumeThis equation was used to calculate the density of an object.| Buoyant ForceB=Δmg=ρf VobjgThis equation was used to calculate the buoyant force of an object.| Experimental Procedure:

ProcedureA: * Setup similar to the spring constant lab * Use the same or a similar spring from the spring constant lab * Find the spring constant of the smallest spring used from previous lab if not already foundB: * Use the same metal rod from the Error of Propagation experiment and attach it to the bottom of the spring * Fully submerged the metal rod in a beaker of water * Record the displacement of the submerged object * Repeat several times making sure the object is fully submerged and steadyC: * Dry the object and then repeat part B with an unknown liquid| Observations * Used spring i. We worked with a different group so we used their spring with their known spring constant. * Used an iron rod, which is what the group we worked with used before. * Starting volume decreased after the first trial * Displacement in the unknown liquid was very similar to that of water|

Data/Results:

Spring constant: k=0.023 N/m
This was received from the group we worked with.

...Title:
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...

How does the length of a string holding a pendulum affect its oscillation?
Method
1. You will need the following apparatus: a pendulum, a piece of string, a clamp, a clamp stand and a timer.
2. Measure out 20cm and attach the metal ball.
3. Establish an angle and let the ball swing for 10 oscillations, timing it and stopping at the 10th one.
4. Write down your results.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 another 2 times so that...

...discrepancies for the elastic collisions were less than the percent discrepancies in inelastic collisions which validates the concept of energy conservation to be more efficient in elastic collisions.
Introduction

...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...

“The Domino Effect”
Teacher’s Prompt
Investigate the domino effect with a set of dominoes.
Aim
To investigate the relationship between the mass of the dominoes, and how it impacts the time taken of the domino effect.
Independent Variable: The mass of each domino (12.38 g, 32.38 g, 42.38 g, 62.38 g, 82.38 g).
Dependent Variable: Time taken of the domino effect.
Controlled Variable: The number of dominoes used (8 dominoes), the distance between the dominoes (2 cm), the loads used as...
