gas) experiences an up thrust force (buoyant force)

equal to the weight of the fluid displaced

:Proof

Suppose a liquid cylinder of volume (VL) in a resting liquid of density

(ρL).

……… The cylinder is subjected by 2 forces

i. The horizontal forces in all directions cancel each other.

ii. The vertical forces:

a) Its weight WL = mg = ρLgVL ………… (1

b) Up thrust force on the cylinder which results from difference in

pressure on both bases of the cylinder

P (upper surface) = Pa + ρgh1

P (lower surface) = Pa + ρgh2

rP = ρgh

∴ Fb = rP X A = ρgh X A

∴ Fb = ρLgVimmersed ………………………………………… (2)

From 1 & 2

Fb = the weight of liquid displaced.

Buoyancy

Buoyancy arises from the fact that fluid pressure increases with depth

and from the fact that the increased pressure is exerted in all directions

so that there is an unbalanced upward force on the bottom of a

submerged object.

Since the "water ball" at left is exactly supported by the difference in

pressure and the solid object at right experiences exactly the same

pressure environment, it follows that the buoyant force on the solid object

is equal to the weight of the water displaced.

Equal Volumes Feel Equal Buoyant Forces

Suppose you had equal sized balls of cork, aluminum and lead, with

respective specific gravities of 0.2, 2.7, and 11.3. If the volume of each

is 10 cubic centimeters then their masses are 2, 27, and 113 gm.

(the cork would accelerate upward), 17 and 103 grams respectively.

The behavior of the three balls would certainly be different upon release

from rest in the water. The cork would bob up, the aluminum would

sink, and the lead would sink more rapidly. But the buoyant force on

each is the same because of identical pressure environments and equal

water displacement. The difference in behavior comes from the

comparison of that buoyant force with the weight of the object.

• Floating object:

The floating object is in equilibrium (acceleration a = 0), so the

total force acting must be zero. Gravity still acts on the object, so

there must be an equal force upwards, exerted on the floating

object by the water.

• Submerged object:

When an object is underwater, we know that it doesn't feel as

heavy. A force exerted on it by the water reduces its apparent

weight. If an object is completely submerged, the displaced volume

of water is equal to the volume of the object. The buoyancy force

will reduce the apparent weight of the object.

Floating object

FB = ρfluid

Vdisplaced g

Submerged object

FB = ρfluid Vobject g

“The magnitude of the buoyancy force is equal to the

weight of the displaced fluid”

Density

RELATIVE DENSITY OF A SOLID:

Relative density of an object = mass of object...……

………………

Mass of same

volume of water

The concept of relative density comes by comparing the

density of an object to the density of water.

It is calculated by weighing the object in air and then

placing it in water. The amount of water that has been

displaced when the object was placed in it is then

weighed.

This comparison when calculated, gives the relative

density of the object.

RELATIVE DENSITY OF A LIQUID:

The relative density of liquid measures:

Mass of liquid

mass of equal volume of water

Also,

Apparent loss in weight of object in liquid

Apparent loss in weight of object in water

An object immersed in meth [methanol] will experience

less up thrust on it than if it was immersed in water. It is

due to the fact that meths is less dense than water so the

meth’s displaced by the object weighs less than the same

volumes of water yet the volume displaced by it is

greater than the volume displaced by water. This is again,

due to the reason that meths is less dense than water

therefore less heavier, so more volume of it will make for

e.g., a 2N weight than the volume of 2N of water.

Hence, to displace this larger volume of meths the object

floats lower in meth than in water.

By comparing the density of an object with that of the

fluid it is to be immersed in, it can be found whether it

will float or sink in that fluid. The object will only float if

its density is same or less than that of the fluid.

For e.g.:

• Wood, petrol and ice will float in water

• Hot water will float up in cold water

• Hydrogen gas will float upwards in air

• Hot air will float upwards in cold air

• Steel will float in liquid mercury but sink in water

CALCULATIONS ON ARCHIMEDES' PRINCIPLE AND

FLOTATION:

• Archimedes' principle applies to all objects immersed

in liquid regardless of whether they are floating or

not

• The Law of flotation, however, only applies to floating

objects.

Both the Law and the Principle are concerned with weight

of objects and fluids. However, when solving problems,

one is often dealing with volumes. The connection

between the weight of a substance and its volume is:

Mass = volume x density

Weight = mass x g

Therefore,

|Weight = volume x density x g|

THE LAW OF FLOTATION:

A floating object displaces its own weight of the fluid in

which it floats.

Pressure

Consider a container full of water:

The volume of water is V = A×h, so the mass of water is m = ρV = ρA h,

and the weight of the water is mg = ρg A h downwards. The weight of

the water is the force exerted by the water on the bottom of the

container. This force is spread out over the whole surface area of the

bottom.

We call the force divided by the area the pressure:

p F

=

A

The SI unit of pressure is the Pascal (Pa), which is a Newton per square

meter (N/m2).
