BOUYANCY, EUREKA CAN AND GETTING HEAVIER

Bookmark

There is an Eureka can and an object is put on it.

  • If the object is floating, then there is no weight difference for the water container. (G=F_k)
  • If the object is fully submerged, then the water container is getting heavier since no more bouyancy force is equal to the weight of the object. (G>F_k ). It will be G-F_k heavier than before.
  • If the object floating in its own liqud, (e.g. ice in water) then if the solid part melts the liquid level does not change.
