Unformatted text preview: caught in the first cup. This is done so that the water spilled out can be weighed and compared to a calculated weight of which the water should be. After filling the cup, the cylinder was put into the cup , allowing the water to spill out and be caught in the first cup. After the water had spilled out it was weighed, which was 8.3g, converted to kg was .0083g. The weight of this displaced water in Newtons was 0.081423n. The percentage error with the buoyant force from step one was calculated using , this resulted, using .114 for Fb and .0813 for Wdisp, a 28.7% error. After completing this lab, it has become more apparent as to how to calculate boyant forces and how that information can be used. b Buoyant Forces B...
