Demo 1 cm aluminum cube (it’s weight is small) Measure its mass w balance. Kid’s baseball (hollow sphere of plastic) it’s weight is more than the cube. The heavy one floats!

Buoyancy

Why do boats float on water?

Demonstration Ping pong ball on the table. Why doesn’t the ball fall down? Ping pong ball in the aquarium. Why doesn’t the ball fall down (“sink”) ? In both cases, there is an upward force on the ball! At its core, it is as simple as that, the water pushes up; we call it the “buoyant” force.

“Hey, are you saying that the water pushes up on the ball?” How can that be? Why would water do that to a ball? Answer is coming up…

Have you ever jumped off of a diving board and gone down about 10 feet below the surface of the water? What does that feel like?

The deeper you go, the greater the pressure. What is wrong about this drawing of the water pressure on a box that is underwater?

Is this better or worse?

OK, why is the pressure greater the lower you go? To see why, let’s build the marshmallow tower!

One marshmallow

Keep Stacking!

Something is happening …

What’s happening to the one on the bottom?

Did you ever build a human pyramid?

What is the worst job in the human pyramid (and why is that job so bad)?

Why is the pressure greater at greater depth? What keeps the people at the top of the pyramid from falling? What keeps the water at the top of the ocean from falling? What keeps the air, high in the atmosphere, from falling to earth?

Why is pressure in a fluid greater, at greater depths? Deep in the ocean, the water molecules are pressed together by the weight of the molecules above. At the bottom the molecules are densely packed. It takes a large force to squeeze water, and in return, the molecules are pushing back with a large force. This is why the pressure down there is so crushingly huge. The same thing is happening low in the atmosphere: The air molecules down here are being pressed together by the molecules up there. The density of oxygen at the earth’s surface is much greater than the density where airplanes fly (that’s why planes carry oxygen masks). The air pressure up there is much less than the air pressure down here.

So, since the pressure increases the lower you go, every object is “buoyed” up. There is a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ force on every object in a fluid.

So, since the pressure increases the lower you go, every object is “buoyed” up. There is a buoyant force on every object in a fluid.

Every object in air or in water has an upward force on it.

The fluid pushes up. Why do objects float? Why does the fluid push up? The pressure on the bottom of the object is greater than the pressure on the top.

The fluid pushes up. Why do objects float? Why does the fluid push up? The pressure on the bottom of the object is greater than the presure on the top. Why is the pressure greater on the bottom?

The fluid pushes up. Why do objects float? Why does the fluid push up? The pressure on the bottom of the object is greater than the presure on the top. Why is the pressure greater on the bottom? The molecules that are lower are squished by the molecules that are higher.

The fluid pushes up. Why do objects float? Why does the fluid push up? The pressure on the bottom of the object is greater than the presure on the top. Why is the pressure greater on the bottom? The molecules that are lower are squished by the molecules that are higher. This produces the buoyant force that holds up ships and balloons.

What about a rock? If there is always a buoyant force, then why do some things sink?

Why doesn’t every object float?

Why doesn’t every object float? (Remember that just because there is a force on an object, that does not mean the object will go in the direction of the force. For example, gravity is putting a downward for on you right now, but you are not moving down.)

OK then, why, exactly, do some objects sink, and some float?

Consider a brick that someone has just dropped into some water. Draw the forces that act on the brick…

Ladies and Gentlemen … A sinker! Buoyant Force Weight

Consider a basketball that someone has managed to get underwater. They release the ball. Please draw the forces…

Is there a buoyant force on that rock?

Is there a Buoyant force on you right now? Give a reason for or against. Why do helium balloons float? Why do air-filled balloons sink? Why do you sink in air but float in water?

Beach Ball. Why does the ball stop rising? 1 2 3 4 5 678

The ball stopped rising because: The buoyant force decreased; it became equal to the weight. The buoyant force decreased when less of the ball was underwater. The buoyant force is proportional to how much volume is under water. B ~ V

An Equation for Buoyant Force B = [Density]  [Volume]  [g] D = density (mass/volume) of the fluid displaced V = the submerged volume of the object g = 9.8 m/s 2 B = DVg

Just before you jump in a pool, you take a deep breath of air. How does this change the buoyant force on you? B = DgV

a)You have changed the Density of the fluid. b)You have changed g = 9.8 to a new value. c)You have increased your Volume. d)You have decreased your Volume.

Why is it impossible for an object to float on top of the ocean (with none of the object under water?

Calculate the Buoyant Force A shoe box has a volume of about 0.005 m 3. The density of air is about 1.25 kg/m 3. The density of water is 1000 kg/m 3. What is the Buoyant force in air? B = DVg = (1.25)(.005)(9.8) = 0.06 N What is the Buoyant force in water? B = DVg = (1000)(.005)(9.8) = 50 N If the box weighs 40 N, does it float? What would it need to weigh to float in air?

Float - Sink: A different way You don’t need to know the weight or the buoyant force!

Does ice ever sink in your glass of water?

No. Even if the ice is very heavy (iceberg) it always floats in water.

Does a pebble ever float in a puddle?

Does a stone ever float in a puddle? No. No matter how light, a stone always sinks in a puddle.

The pattern: There is some quality of ice that always makes it float in water, and some quality of granite that always makes it sink:

Density = Mass / Volume

Mass is the amount of _ _ _ _ _ _ an object has. [Think about protons and neutrons.]

Density = Mass / Volume Mass is the amount of matter an object has. [Think about protons and neutrons.] Volume is the amount of _ _ _ _ _ that an object has (think gallons).

Density = Mass / Volume Mass is the amount of matter an object has. [Think about protons and neutrons.] Volume is the amount of space that an object has (think gallons). Low density materials (styrofoam) take up a lot of _ _ _ _ _ _ without much _ _ _ _.

Steel ships float A steel ship is mostly air. The average Density of a ship is less than the density of water.

Why do Hot-Air Balloons rise in air?

Why does smoke rise?

Still another view - Archimedes B = gDV{V = volume submerged} B = (DV)g B = Mg ! The buoyant force is equal to the weight of the fluid that is moved aside by the object that is in the fluid.

Archimedes B = gDV B = (DV)g B = Mg ! The buoyant force is equal to the weight of the fluid that is moved aside by the object that is in the fluid. “B = the weight of the water displaced.” “ Eureka! ” Means “I found it !”

Archimedes For a rock at the bottom of a river, how does the weight of the water displaced compare to the weight of the rock? For a swimmer, how does the volume displaced compare to the volume of the swimmer?

Which ship has the greater buoyant force acting on it. Don’t be fooled!

What is the volume of the displaced water equal to?

What is the weight of the displaced water equal to?

How does the weight of the displaced water compare to the weight of the stone?
