Students will learn about the Buoyant force, how to calculate problems involving buoyancy and Archimedes principle.
Definition of buoyant force and how weight and density relate to buoyant force and its ability to float.
Fluids Chapter Problem #2 of the People's Physics Book is explained and worked out.
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.
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.
