Introduction: Archimede’s princliple is used to determine the density of an object. The Archimedes principle states that the buoyant force of an object in a liquid is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by the object. The buoyant force is found by multiplying gravity, density of the liquid, and volume of the object in it. Buoyant force can also be found subtracting the weight of the object in the air by its weight in the liquid. The density of the object is found by

Unformatted text preview: deviding the mass of the object by its volume. These are the formulas when finding the density of an object in fluid. Results: Conclusion: This experiment teaches me how to accurately measure the density of an object using Archimedes principle. Also, the experiment shows how to measure density when some of the measurements are unknown or if the liquid used is something other than water....
