ARCHIMEDES PRINCIPLE

Is a law of physics stating that the upward buoyant force


exerted on a body immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid the body displaces. In other words, an immersed object is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid it actually displaces.

APPARENT WEIGHT

The loss in weight when an object is immersed in water is


due to the buoyant force that acts on the object. The buoyant force acting on the object is thus equal to the loss in weight of the object.

EUREKA CAN

Equation:
F = mg or F = pVg
where in m= mass of liquid g = gravitational acceleration V = objects volume p = liquids density (equal to the equal to the weight per unit of volume)

object

water

Is it the weight of the object in air is same with the weight of the object in water?

Buoyant force

BUOYANT FORCE
weight

Buoyant force is an upward force resulting an object wholly or partially immersed in a fluids.
