Unit 3: Density and Buoyancy

All objects experience a buoyancy force when immersed in a fluid.
  • Density is mass per unit volume.
  • Calculate the density of substances (regular and irregular solids and liquids) from measurements of mass and volume.
  • The buoyant force on an object in a fluid is an upward force equal to the weight of the fluid the object has displaced.
  • Predict whether an object will float or sink.
