FLUIDS

Part 1: Archimedes' Principle

Equipment: Dial-O-Gram balance, small beaker (150-250ml), metal specimen, string, calipers.

Method: Using distilled water, a beaker and Dial-O-Gram balance, determine the volume and

density of one of the metal specimens. Use the arrangement depicted in Figure 1. You must first

weigh the sample in air (ignore the buoyant force of air) and then submerge the sample in water

and weigh it again, the difference is the buoyant mass which is equal to the mass of the displaced

fluid. These two measurements (and the fluid density) are all that's required to find the volume

and density of the object. (Note: Ignore any volume markings on the beaker and use the

buoyant force principle). If you are unsure of Archimedes' principle see your text.

Fill in the table below by using the experimental setup shown in Figure 1.

Determine the geometrical volume of the specimen. State your method of measurement,

equipment used, and show your work below.

Compare this with the volume estimated using Archimedes' principle. (% error)

Compare the calculated density of your specimen to that listed in a standard density table for the

particular material of the specimen. (% error)

Part 1B.

Use the specimen that you used in the previous section to find the density of the unknown fluid.

Hint: You should, by this time, know the volume of the specimen. Use the specimen volume

that you determined by Archimedes' principle. Make sure that you show all of your data and

calculations.

Density of fluid

Determine the density of your unknown fluid by measuring the mass of a 100 ml volume of the

fluid. Compare this to the density calculated using Archimedes Principle using percent

difference.

Part 1C.

Use Archimedes' Principle to calculate the minimum mass necessary to sink a small plastic boat.

Show all of your work below.

Measure the boat's mass and determine the amount of mass that you will add to just sink the boat.

Perform the experiment and compare the calculated payload with the experimental payload that

just sank the boat.

Make sure that you show all of your data and calculations.

1. A barge is shaped like an open box, 12 m wide by 30 m long and 6 m in the vertical

dimension. The barge has a mass of 100,000 kg. How heavy a payload, in kg, can the barge

carry if the maximum draft is to be 2 m? Draft is the amount below water level.

Part 2: Reading a manometer to find the absolute pressure in a flask.

Activity Lab

Equipment: manometer (a U tube with liquid in the bottom) (don't touch), barometer (on wall in

SE corner of Lab)

There is a flask in the lab which is connected to one side of a manometer; the other side is open

to the atmosphere. Imagine a disk perpendicular to the axis of the manometer tube and located at

the bottom of the U. What would happen to such a disk if the pressure on one side were

greater than the pressure on the other?

Now think about the pressures on each side of the manometer. On the flask side, there is the

pressure in the flask and the pressure due to the column of liquid on that side of the manometer.

Show that the pressure (Force/area) exerted by a column of liquid with

density is gh.

A

P1 = P(flask) +

The total pressure on the other side of the manometer, which is open to the atmosphere, is

P2 = P(atm) +

Now, remember our imaginary disk at the bottom of the manometer. The liquid in the

manometer is not moving (or wait until it isnt), so neither would such a disk be moving. Use

this to relate the pressures on each side as calculated above. Subtract out any common factors to

get your final relation, given below. (Show your work)

P(flask) = P(atm) + gh

Determine the absolute pressure (pressure above absolute vacuum) in the flask in Torr, mm Hg,

dynes/cm2, atmospheres and pounds/in2. HINT: You will have to read the barometer in lab to

do this since you will need atmospheric pressure.

How is pressure measured in mmHg?

It used to be common to use mercury in manometers and barometers because of its high density.

One atmosphere of pressure pushed up a column of 760 mm of mercury. Torricelli made a

mercury barometer to measure the atmospheric pressure by sealing off one side of a manometer

and filling the entire manometer with mercury (no air space on the sealed side). A simpler

modification of this, which he used, was to fill a long tube sealed at one end with mercury and

then invert it in a dish of mercury open to the atmosphere. Note that both of these instruments

naturally measure pressure in units of mm Hg.

One can measure the gauge pressure, in mm Hg, by taking the difference in height of a

manometer with mercury as the liquid column. (P = gh; the value for h, in mm, is the number

reported; mercury specifies the value for as 13.6 g/cm3 which, along with the value for the

gravitational acceleration, g, would be involved in calculating actual pressure units in Pa or

N/m2.)

Questions: Show your work.

2. Given the following drawing of a manometer find the gauge pressure and absolute pressure in

the container in Pascals and pound/in2. The liquid used is alcohol of density 624 kg/m3. The

barometric pressure is 755 mm Hg.

4. is the absolute pressure positive or negative in problem #2?

Is it possible to have a negative absolute pressure? Discuss: _____________________________

Evangelista Torricelli (1608-1647) first proposed the relationship below.

The speed that a non-viscous fluid will exit a hole which is a distance h below the water level is

v 2gh

Refer to this as the theoretical velocity of the water leaving the tank.

Use a 2-liter soda bottle with hole in the side to check this relationship for three different water

levels, h. Set the bottle on the edge of the sink and allow the water to squirt out into the sink.

Put three marks on the side and measure x as the water level drops to each of these marks.

Starting with x=vt and y=1/2gt for a projectile launched horizontally from a distance y above

the ground derive the experimental velocity formula

g

Show all steps to your derivation.

Make a graph showing the exit velocity versus height h (water level above the

hole). Plot both experimental and theoretical values of v on this graph. How

do your experimental values of velocity compare to the theoretical values? (Are they always

higher, always lower, or randomly scattered about the theoretical values?)

Give at least two reason(s) explaining why you think that your experimental values compare to

the theoretical values as they do. Make sure your reasoning is consistent with your experimental

results and think about effects considered and assumptions made in the theoretical calculation.
