Unformatted text preview: Lab Three Archimedes’ P rinciple Pu rpose: In this lab, our goals are to verify Archimedes’ Principle by comparing the buoyant force on a submerged object to the weight of water the object displaces and to determine whether a submerged object displaces water based on its mass, volume or density. Also, we would like to discover the reason why object sink or float through the experiments done during this lab.
