...sugar solutions is based on the well-known principle of Archimedes that a body immersed in a liquid **is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced liquid.** In making a determination, a glass sinker or bulb weighted with mercury is suspended from the arm of... | |

...use of standards of mass is the buoyancy or lifting effect of the air. A body immersed in any fluid **is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced** fluid. Two bodies of equal mass, if placed one on each pan of an equal-arm balance, will balance each... | |

...iron instead of the liquid. Therefore when any object is wholly or partially immersed in a liquid it **is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced liquid,** and the center of pressure is where the center of gravity of the submerged portion would be if it were... | |

...law is called the Principle of Archimedes. It may be stated as follows : A body immersed in a liquid **is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced liquid.** This tendency of a liquid to lift a submerged body is called its buoyancy, and depends in amount upon... | |
