How can we determine the density of a solid object by using Archimedes' Principle?
Asked by Jerlin George | 3rd Mar, 2015, 01:13: AM
According to the Archimede's principle, a body dropped in a liquid displaces an amount of that liquid equal to the volume of the body.
Knowing the weight of the body , we can calculate its mass too.
We know that Density = mass/volume
Knowing mass and volume we can calculate its density.
