## F2-01 ARCHIMEDES' PRINCIPLE

• ID Code: F2-01
• Purpose: Demonstrates the buoyant force on a body submerged in a fluid to be equal to the weight of the displaced fluid.
• Description: Hanging from the balance are a hollow can and a solid cylindrical metal block of the same volume V. Lowering the metal block into a beaker of water results in a buoyant force equal to the weight of a volume V of water. Pouring the volume V of water into the can restores the original weight as read on the spring scale.
• Availability: Available
• Loc codes: FS2
