Archimedes is considered to be one of the greatest mathematicians and inventors. His most famous theorem deals with the weight of a body immersed in water. It is known after him as the “Archimedes’ Principle”. It states that a body immersed in a liquid will be subjected to an upward force (buoyancy) equal in magnitude to the weight of the fluid it displaces. The aim of this experiment is to demonstrate this concept.
- Student explore concept of liquid and volume and learn about properties of liquid.
- Awareness about why some things float in water and others do not.
- Correlation between theory and practical becomes easier
