...bath and watched the water rise. In that instant, Archimedes realized that a body immersed in fluid **is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced** fluid. Legend has it that he ran through the streets naked he was so excited about discovering this... | |

...equal to AF = (3-140) ie, the weight of the displaced fluid. We see, therefore, that this thin cylinder **is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced** fluid even in a compressible fluid. The same result applies to a body of arbitrary shapes since it... | |

...force depends on the density of the fluid and the volume of the object. An object submerged in a fluid **is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced** fluid (Archimedes' principle). Thus the difference in weight of an object in air and water equals the... | |
