Newton vs. Archimedes Archimedes ` principle: The buoyant force on a body in a fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by that object. 1 2 Newton’s 2 nd law: F net = 0 when a body is NOT accelerating F B = mg F B = mg 1 2 ! f V f g = o V o g f ( 1 2 V O ) g = O V O g

Need to look at NET forces acting on an object will always be a MIN of 2 forces: (1) mass of object & gravity (2) force buoyancy Net forces in a fluid m If NOT MOVING à these two will be EQUAL Maybe be MORE than 2 forces: à F B = TOTAL weight, e.g., mg + tension, ρ o V o g + mg look at the SUM of the forces à extra buoyancy force makes a mass appear lighter in a fluid
