Purpose: To show that the buoyant force acting on an object submerged in a liquid is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced. Equipment: Metal sample, triple beam balance, vernier caliper, beaker, and liquids Discussion: Archimedes Principle states that the buoyant force acting on a body submerged in a liquid is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced: B = lVg where l = density of liquid

The buoyant force is also equal to the difference between the actual and the apparent (or effective) weight of the sample: B = Wactual - Wapparent Procedure: Part A: (a) Measure the mass of the metal sample (b) Calculate its weight (the actual weight) (c) Measure the mass of the sample submerged in water (d) Calculate the apparent weight of the sample in water (e) Calculate the buoyant force acting on the sample (a) Measure the dimensions of the cylindrical sample (b) Calculate the volume of the cylinder (c) Calculate the mass of an equal volume of water (d) Calculate the weight of the displaced water Find the percent difference between the buoyant forces found in part A and the weight of the displaced water found in part B.

Difference between the two exp erimental values Average exp erimental value 100

Part B:

Part C:

% difference = Part D:

Repeat the above procedure using another metal sample and antifreeze.

Data:

Metal's Mass (MC) MC submerged in water (MWater) Density of water (water) MC submerged in antifreeze (Mantifreeze) Density of antifreeze (antifreeze) Metal's Height (h1) Metal's Diameter (d1) Metal's Radius (r1) Metal's height of hole (h2) Metal's Diameter of hole (d2) Metal's Radius of hole (r2) 30.16 g 19.71 g 1

g

/cm3

Calculations:

Actual weight of metal sample: (MC)(g) = (.03016 kg)(9.81 m/s2) = .296 N Volume of cylinder: VC = ()(r1)2(h1) VC = ()(.95 cm)2(3.8 cm) VC = 10.77 cm3 Volume of cylinder hole: VH = ()(r2)2(h2) VH = ()(.15 cm)2(1.9 cm) VH = .13 cm3 Cylinder's total volume: VT = VC - VH VT = 10.77 cm3 - .13 cm3 VT = 10.64 cm3 VT = .000011m3

Apparent weight of metal: (Mwater)(g) = (.01971 kg)(9.81 m/s2) = .193 N Buoyant force acting on metal: B = Wactual - Wapparent B = .296 N - .193 N B = .103 N Mass of an equal amount of water (MW): MW = waterVT

MW = (1103 kg/m3)(.000011m3) MW = .011 kg Weight of displaced water: B = (MW)(g) B = (.011 kg)(9.81 m/s2) B = .108 N % difference = [(.108 N - .103 N)/(.106 N)] 100 = 4.75 % difference

Apparent weight of metal: (Mantifreeze)(g) = (.01869 kg)(9.81 m/s2) = .183 N Buoyant force acting on metal: B = Wactual - Wapparent B = .296 N - .183 N B = .113 N Mass of an equal amount of antifreeze (Mantifreeze): Mantifreeze = antifreezeVT Mantifreeze = (1,115 kg/m3)(.000011m3) Mantifreeze = .012 kg Weight of displaced antifreeze: B = (Mantifreeze)(g) B = (.012 kg)(9.81 m/s2) B = .118 N % difference = [(.118 N - .113 N)/(.116 N)] 100 = 4.31 % difference

Error analysis: From the % difference equation, it was determined that some error occurred during the procedure of the lab. This error could be a result due to the improper use of the vernier caliper and the chance that the balance beam was not correctly zeroed at the start of the experiment. These errors would cause inaccurate values of the measured weight and a false value for the volume of the metal sample. Having these errors would be enough to offset the correct results, to a point where the experimental data is incorrect.

Conclusions: As stated before, the purpose of the lab was to prove that the buoyant force acting on the metal sample is equivalent to the liquid displaced. This was made possible by using Archimedes Principle. Though the metal sample was tested in two different fluids, water and antifreeze, the principle was proven correct. The difference between the actual and apparent weight was small showing the accuracy of Archimedes Principle.
