Topic 6 Buoyancy

Internetconnect Topic 6

Density and Buoyancy When will objects float and when will they sink? Learn how buoyancy works with blocks. Arrows show the applied forces, and you can modify the properties of the blocks and the fluid. Lab Report

Buoyancy Explorer - "Does it float or sink? Use this virtual experiment to try different solids and liquids. Guess what will happen. Then drop the blocks into the liquids and see for yourself. "
Buoyant Forces In Liquids This Java applet shows a simple experiment concerning the buoyancy in a liquid: A solid body hanging from a spring balance is dipped into a liquid.
