Students will learn about the Buoyant force, how to calculate problems involving buoyancy and Archimedes principle.
Fluids Chapter Problem #2 of the People's Physics Book is explained and worked out.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Buoyancy.
This simulation lets you see the effect when you change the mass, volume, and density (by changing material) of the block and the density of the fluid.
Shows how different properties cause an object to float or sink in water.
This study guide gives a brief overview of the properties of fluids: pressure, Pascal's law, Archimedes' principle, the continuity of fluid flow, Bernoulli's equation and conservation of energy, surface tension, viscosity, and turbulence.
