Suffolk County Community College

PURPOSE
 Verify Archimedes Principle
 Measure density three separate ways
INTRODUCTION
In this experiment, we will determine the density of a metal weight based off
of three different calculations. Comparing the three different results will
demonstrate the uncertainties and verification of Archimedes Principle on
buoyancy. Archimedes Principle explains that the size of the buoyant force B is
equal to the weight of the displaced volume of water and acts directly upward. The
equation that represents this is:
B = ρwater x g x V
Where ρ is density, g is acceleration due to gravity and V is volume of displaced
fluid.
PROCEDURE
1. We attached a string to the brass cylinder’s eyelet.
2. We measured the weight of the sample five times using a spring scale.
3. I filled up a graduated cylinder about ¾ of the way.
