Proof that an immersed body

Proof that an immersed body

**is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced liquid**The buoyant force exerted by a liquid is exactly equal to the weight of the displaced liquid . The reasoning is exactly the same , no matter ... Page 22

Proof that a floating body

Proof that a floating body

**is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced liquid**A floating body must displace its own weight of the liquid in which it floats . This statement is embraced in the statement of Archimedes ...### What people are saying - Write a review
