## What is the purpose of Archimedes Principle lab?

The goal of this laboratory is to investigate the density of different materials using Archimedes’ buoyancy principle. This buoyant force can then be used to determine the density or volume of the object which is immersed in water (depending on the final goal).

## How can you prove that Archimedes Principle is experimentally?

Take a stone of known volume with density greater than water and hang it with a spring weighing balance. Record the mass m (W1) and volume V. Now lower the system of stone and weighing balance into water slowly such that the stone is completely immersed in water (weighing machine is not immersed).

## How do you demonstrate Archimedes Principle at home?

For example, a ship that is launched sinks into the ocean until the weight of the water it displaces is just equal to its own weight. As the ship is loaded, it sinks deeper, displacing more water, and so the magnitude of the buoyant force continuously matches the weight of the ship and its cargo.

## What is the purpose of Archimedes Principle?

Archimedes’ principle is very useful for calculating the volume of an object that does not have a regular shape. The oddly shaped object can be submerged, and the volume of the fluid displaced is equal to the volume of the object. It can also be used in calculating the density or specific gravity of an object.

## How do you do the Archimedes principle experiment?

Archimedes Principle Experiment

• Take a container filled with water to the brim.
• Now take any solid object you like and measure its weight using a spring balance.
• Keep the object attached to the spring balance and submerge it in the water.
• Now, note down the weight shown by the spring balance.
