Archimedes' principle: When an object is wholly (or partially) immersed in a liquid, it experiences a buoyant force (or upthrust) which is equal to the weight of liquid displaced by the object.
Buoyant force on an object = weight of liquid displaced by that object
Applications of Archimedes’ principle:
1. In determining the relative density of a substance
2. In determining the density of liquids by a hydrometer

- What is buoyancy
- a metallic sphere of radius 2 centimetre is completely dipped in water find the force of buoyancy in density of water is 1000 kg per metre cube
- A solid of weighs 2.10 in air. Its relative density is 8.4. how much will the body weigh if (1) in water (2) in liquid of relative density 1.2?
