PHYSICS 103: Lecture 18 Archimedes Principle Example Problems Agenda for Today:

2
Archimedes Principle An object imersed in a fluid experiences an upward buyont force equal to the weight of fluid it displaces

3
F g =mg F b =m f g The density of anything is: This means that the mass can be written as: Since an object displaces the same volume of fluid, this means that if an object is less dense than the fluid it is submerged in, the buoyonacy force is greater than its weight An Object in a Fluid: The object will rise until it floats

4
Example Problems

5
Main Points from Today’s Lecture Archimedes Principle You should understand that the density of an object determines the buoyancy force on it if it is submerged in a fluid. If it is less dense than the fluid, it will rise and float to a height where the water displaced is equal to the weight of the object. You should understand the example problems we reviewed.
