Page 2 Procedure: In today’s lab my partner and I will be determining the specific gravity of several substances by application of Archimedes’ Principle. We find out what specific gravity of a substance is by getting a ratio of its density to the density of water. We are also introduced to Archimedes’ Principle. Data:

Page 3 Calculations: 1) First we needed to calculate the conversion to SI units since it is easier to use grams and cm in our experiment. 2) We then need to calculate our Specific Gravity for each Part of our lab. First is Part A we need to use the equation: S= W/W-Wo. We use this equation for the other two Solids. 3) We then use another equation: S= W/W 1 -W 2 for part B. 4) Lastly for Part C, we use: S= W-W liq /W-W o. S= W/B= W/W-Wo S= W/B= W/W 1 -W 2 W 1 -W 2 = B= BUOYANT FORCE S= B l /B w = W-W l /W-W o Fbest=½(fmax+fmin) δf= ½(fmax-fmin) Questions: 1) 2) The weight W of the solid observed in Part A would increase if we the observation in a vacuum.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
