Lab Meeting: Tuesdays 11:00am-1:00pm Purpose The purpose of this laboratory experiment is to test and determine the density of an object using the  Archimede’s principle.  Theory This   laboratory   experiment   will   attempt   to   prove   the   principle   set   force   by   Archimedes.   The  Archimedes Principle states that the magnitude of the buoyant force on an object is always equal to  the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.  The buoyant force is described as the force exerted by  a fluid on any immersed object. This experiment will use a force sensor to analyze the mass of an  object hung on a hook. Two objects will be measured, a uniform cylindrical object and an irregular  sized object, and the sensor will measure the mass and the mass as it is submerged in a fluid. The  lab should show that in working with a now fluid such as water, we can calculate the density of the  object.
