Archimedes Law
CMCE 2351 Fluid Mechanics Laboratory
Note: Make three (3) copes if this data sheet and run three trials.
Data
Fluid Name: ____________________________________(write in fluid name)
a. Temperature of fluid,
b. Radius of cylinder, r = _________ mm
c. Mass of beaker + fluid + cylinder = _________ g
d. Height of cylinder submerged, h = _________ mm
e. Mass of beaker + fluid = _________ g
f.

Mass of fluid displaced


m = (Mass of beaker + fluid + cylinder) (Mass of beaker + fluid) = _________ g = __________ kg

g. Volume of fluid displaced

h. Density of fluid

i.

Use the average of the three densities (Item h) when calculating percent error. The goal is to be
within 2% of the standard value.

j.

Archimedes Law states: Every body experiences an upthrust (buoyant force) equal to the weight of
fluid displaced. Does the calculated density demonstrate this principle about the weight of the
fluid displaced? Be sure to explain this in the conclusion section of the lab report.
