Experimental Verification of Archimedes Principle

Lesson Progress

Suspend an object (glass Stopper) freely from a spring balance and read its weight. The object is then lowered gently into the water in Eureka can, and the new reading is noted.

Archimedes principle Easy Resize.com

Weight of object in air = W1
Weight of object in water = W2
Weight of empty beaker = W3
Weight of beaker + displaced water = W4
Apparent loss in weight of object = W1 – W2
Weight of displaced water = W4 – W3

If W1 – W2 is compared to W4 – W3, they will be found to be equal, confirming the Archimedes principle.
