I. ARCHIMEDES STORY AND PRINCIPLE

Archimedes Story

Archimedes's tale takes place some 2,200 years ago when King Heron II of Syracuse in Sicily

gave a jeweller a bar of gold and ordered him to make it into a crown. The king, however,

suspected that the jeweller had substituted some of the gold for cheaper metal like silver, while

pocketing the leftover gold.

The king had no way of proving his suspicions, so he asked Archimedes a Greek

mathematician, engineer, inventor, and astronomer to find a definitive answer. Archimedes had

spent a long time trying to figure out the answer, which came to him when he noticed how water

would splash out of his bath tub the moment he stepped into it, and the more he stepped into the

tub, even more water got displaced.

At the time, Archimedes had known that gold was denser than silver, so if a certain weight of

silver had been substituted for the same weight of gold, the crown would occupy a larger space

than an identical one of pure gold.

So to find the crowns volume, all Archimedes had to do was essentially immerse the crown and

exact measurement of pure gold in a tub filled with water to the brim, measure the spillage, and

compare the volume of spillages if the jeweller had indeed made a crown of pure gold the

volume should be the same.

Archimedes was said to be so thrilled with this discovery that he immediately hopped out of the

bath and ran onto the streets naked shouting 'Eureka!' 'Eureka!'.

And in case you were wondering, the jeweller was indeed cheating the king.

Archimedes Principle

II. BOUYANCY (Concept, Principle & Examples)

Buoyancy Concept and Principle

Buoyancy is an upward force exerted by a

fluid that opposes the weight of an immersed

object. The principle of buoyancy holds that the

buoyant or lifting force of an object submerged in

a fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid it has

displaced. The concept is also known as

Archimedes' principle, but Archimedes principle

does not consider the surface tension (capillarity)

acting on the body, but this additional force

modifies only the amount of fluid displaced, so

the principle that Buoyancy = weight of displaced

fluid remains valid.

Any body, wholly or partially immersed in a

fluid, is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight

displaced by the volume Archimedes Principle

Buoyancy Concept

Buoyant Force = weight of object = (unit weight of water x volume displaced)

Examples

Icebergs

Water is an unusual substance in a number of regards; not least its behavior as it freezes.

Close to the freezing point, water thickens up, but once it turns to ice, it becomes less

dense. This is why ice cubes and icebergs float. However, their low density in

comparison to the water around them means that only part of an iceberg stays atop the

surface.

Submarines

A submarine uses ballast as a means of descending and ascending underwater: when the

submarine captain orders the crew to take the craft down, the craft is allowed to take

water into its ballast tanks. If, on the other hand, the command is given to rise toward the

surface, a valve will be opened to release compressed air into the tanks. The air pushes

out the water, and causes the craft to ascend.

Ships at Sea

A steel ball dropped into the water will sink straight to the bottom, because it is a low-

volume, high-density object that outweighs the water it displaced.

But how can ships made out of steel, with a density of 487 lb/ft

3

(77,363 N/m

3

), float on a

salt-water ocean with an average density of only about one-eighth that amount? The

answer lies in the design of the ship's hull. If the ship were flat like a raft, or if all the

steel in it were compressed into a ball, it would indeed sink. Instead, however, the hollow

hull displaces a volume of water heavier than the ships own weight: once again, volume

has been maximized, and density minimized. For a ship to be seaworthy, it must maintain

a delicate balance between buoyancy and stability.

Balloons

There are only three gases practical for lifting a balloon: hydrogen, helium, and hot air.

Each is much less than dense than ordinary air, and this gives them their buoyancy. In

fact, hydrogen is the lightest gas known, and because it is cheap to produce, it would be

idealexcept for the fact that it is extremely flammable. After the 1937 crash of the

airship Hindenburg, the era of hydrogen use for lighter-than-air transport effectively

ended. Helium, on the other hand, is perfectly safe and only slightly less buoyant than

hydrogen. This makes it ideal for balloons of the sort that children enjoy at parties; but

helium is expensive, and therefore impractical for large balloons. Hence, hot air

specifically, air heated to a temperature of about 570F (299C), is the only truly viable

option.

Sample Problem:

The iceberg that hit titanic is having a specific gravity of 0.92 floats in salt water having a

specific gravity of 1.09. If the volume of ice above the surface is 700 yd.

what is the total

volume of the iceberg?

IIa. APPLICATION AND EXPERIMENTS

Sinking Orange Experiment

Do oranges float or sink in water?

Materials

For the Sinking Orange experiment you will need the following materials:

An orange

A deep bowl or container

Water

Procedures

1. Fill the bowl with water.

2. Put the orange in the water and watch what happens.

3. Peel the rind from the orange and try the experiment again, what happens this time?

Discussion

The first time you put the orange in the bowl of water it probably floated on the surface, after

you removed the rind however, it probably sunk to the bottom, why?

The rind of an orange is full of tiny air pockets which help give it a lower density than water,

making it float to the surface. Removing the rind (and all the air pockets) from the orange

increases its density higher than that of water, making it sink.

Density is the mass of an object relative to its volume. Objects with a lot of matter in a certain

volume have a high density, while objects with a small amount of matter in the same volume

have a low density.

Floating Golf Ball Experiment

The Floating Golf Ball Experiment explains why materials (such as an golf ball) float more in

salt water than in dishwashing liquid.

Materials

For the Floating Golf Ball Experiment you will need the following materials:

Table salt

Two containers

Tablespoon

Dishwashing Liquid

Two golf balls

Procedures

1. Fill the first container with tap water.

2. Add about 6 tablespoons of salt in one container and stir it well with a tablespoon until the salt

has completely dissolved in the water.

3. Place a golf ball in the first container.

4. Fill the second container with dishwashing liquid.

5. Place the other golf ball in the second container.

6. Observe which one of the golf balls float in the container and which one sinks.

7. Pour some dishwashing liquid in the container of saltwater.

8. Observe what will happen to the golf ball.

Discussion

The explanation behind this phenomenon is simple - DENSITY! In the Floating Golf Ball

experiment, you have observed that the golf ball placed in saltwater floated and the one in

dishwashing liquid didn't. Because saltwater is denser than dishwashing liquid, the golf ball does

not end up sinking like it usually does!

Tin Foil Boat Experiment

In this easy science experiment you will be designing a tin foil boat that will hold the greatest

number of coins. Get together with some friends and have a contest to see who can design a

cargo boat that will hold the most number of coins.

Materials

For the Tin Foil Boat experiment you will need the following materials:

Tin foil

Bowl

Scissors

Coins

Water

Procedures

1. Cut a piece of tin foil 5 x 6 inches.

2. Fold up the sides of the boat so it will not sink and hold a cargo of coins.

3. Place the boat in the bowl of water. Begin adding coins for the boat's cargo.

4. See how many coins your boat can carry before it sinks.

5. Have some friends over and try this experiment with them. See which one of you can create

the boat that will carry the greatest amount of cargo.

6. Be sure to dry the coins before you begin adding them as cargo because remember water has

weight!

7. Have the person who created the boat begin adding coins to their boat while another person

counts the number of coins as they are added to the boat.

8. Try different ways to distribute the weight of the coins on your barge so you can carry the

maximum number.

Discussion

There are two primary forces acting on this science experiment. The first force is gravity.

Gravity is trying to pull the tin foil and coins downward. The force of buoyancy is pushing the

boat toward the surface.

The gravitational force is determined by the weight of the tin foil and the weight of the coins in

the boat. The force of buoyancy is the weight of the water displaced by the boat.

Your boat will continue to float as long as the force of buoyancy is greater than the force of

gravity and you do not overload the boat so it will tip over or leak.

III. STABILITY OF FLOATING BODIES

Stability

A floating body reaches to an equilibrium state, if

a. its weight = the buoyancy

b. the line of action of these two forces become collinear.

The equilibrium: stable, or unstable or neutrally stable.

Stable equilibrium: if it is slightly displaced from its equilibrium position and will

return to that position.

Unstable equilibrium: if it is slightly displaced form its equilibrium position and tends

to move farther away from this position.

Neutral equilibrium: if it is displaced slightly from this position and will remain in the

new position.

Motion of a Ship:

6 degree of freedom

- Surge

- Sway

- Heave

- Roll

- Pitch

- Yaw

Righting & Heeling Moments

A ship is designed to float in the upright position.

Righting Moment: exists at any angle of inclination where the forces of weight and

buoyancy act to move the ship toward the upright position.

Heeling Moment: exists at any angle of inclination where the forces of weight and

buoyancy act to move the ship away from the upright position.

For a displacement ship,

G---Center of Gravity,

B---Center of Buoyancy

M--- Transverse Metacenter

*If M is above G, we

will have a righting moment,

and

*If M is below G, then

we have a heeling moment.

center line)

Turning

Static Stability

1. The initial stability (aka stability at small inclination) and,

2. The stability at large inclinations.

The initial (or small angle) stability: studies the right moments or right arm at small

inclination angles.

The stability at large inclination (angle): computes the right moments (or right arms) as

function of the inclination angle, up to a limit angle at which the ship may lose its stability

(capsizes).

Initial stability

Righting Arm: A symmetric ship is

inclined at a small angle d. C.B has

moved off the ships centerline as the result

of the inclination. The distance between

the action of buoyancy and weight, GZ, is

called righting arm.

Transverse Metacenter: A vertical line

through the C.B intersects the original

vertical centerline at point, M.

Location of the Transverse Metacenter

Transverse metacentric height: the distance between the C.G. and M (GM). It is important as

an index of transverse stability at small angles of inclination. GZ is positive, if the moment is

righting moment. M should be above C.G, if GZ >0.

If we know the location of M, we may find GM, and thus the righting arm GZ or righting

moment can be determined given a small angle d.

How to determine the location of M?

If the ship is wall-sided with the range of inclinations of a small angle d, then the volume v

and v

will be same. This inclination is called equivolume

inclination. Thus, the intersection of WoLo, and W

is at the longitudinal midsection.

For most ships, while they may be wall-sided in the vicinity of WL near their midship section,

they are not wall-sided near their sterns and bows. However, at a small angle of inclination,

we may still approximately treat them as equivolume inclination.

STABILITY OF FLOATING BODIES

Any floating body is subjected by two opposing vertical forces. One is the body's weight W

which is downward, and the other is the buoyant force BF which is upward. The weight is acting

at the center of gravity G and the buoyant force is acting at the center of buoyancy BO. W and

BF are always equal and if these forces are collinear, the body will be in upright position as

shown below.

The body may tilt from many causes like wind or wave action causing the center of buoyancy to

shift to a new position as shown below.

Point is the intersection of the axis of the body and the line of action of the buoyant force, it is

called metacenter. If M is above G, BF and W will produce a righting moment RM which causes

the body to return to its neutral position, thus the body is stable. If M is below G, the body

becomes unstable because of the overturning moment OM made by W and BF. If M coincides

with G, the body is said to be just stable which simply means critical. The value of righting

moment or overturning moment is given by

The distance is called metacentric height.

Metacentric height,

Use (-) if G is above BO and (+) if G is below BO. Note that M is always above BO.

Value of MBO

Assume that the body is rectangular at the top view and measures B by L at the waterline when

in upright position. The moment due to the shifting of the buoyant force is equal to the moment

due to shifting of wedge.

For small value of , tan sin and note that 1/12 LB3 = I, thus,

The formula above can be applied to any section.

Where

W = weight of the body

BF = buoyant force

M = metacenter

G = center of gravity of the body

BO = center of buoyancy in upright position

BO' = center of buoyancy in tilted position

MG = metacentric height or the distance from M to G

MBO = distance from M to BO

GO = distance from G to BO

v = volume of the wedge either immersion or emersion

s = horizontal distance between the center of gravity of the wedges

= angle of tilting

I = moment of inertia of the waterline section of the body

RM = righting moment

OM = overturning moment
