1. buoyancy "what makes us float" 2. buoyant force a vertical, upward direction force acting upon an object that is submerged or partially submerged in a fluid. 3. always goes up buoyant force always goes in what direction? 4. archimedes' principle a body submerged in a fluid will be buoyed up by a force that is equal magnitude to the weight of the displaced water. 5. archimedes' principle "easiest way to measure is fill container to top, put object/person in, and whatever water comes out weight it and thats the buoyant force" 6. 1. weight of object (mass) 2. amount of water it displaces (volume) Archimedes' principle is based on 2 considerations.. 7. density Relationship of mass to volume is called 8. specific gravity ratio of density of a given substance to density of water 9. positive object with a specific gravity of <1.0 will be ____ buoyant 10. negative object with specific gravity of >1.0 will be _____ buoyant 11. center of mass location on body where cardinal planes pass through and gravitational pull is found. 12. a ball shaped volume of water A submerged ball displaces a _____________ 13. a human shaped body of water A submerged human displaces a __________ 14. center of buoyancy COG of the volume of water displaced by an object 15.

    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.
