State Archimedes' principle. Give two applications based on the principle.

Asked by Topperlearning User 9th November 2016, 3:51 PM
Answered by Expert

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
