Learning Objectives

Describe Archimedes Principle. Define density, buoyancy, and specific gravity. Correctly calculate the buoyancy of an object in either fresh or salt water. Correctly solve lifting problems. Correctly calculate surface air volume equivalents.

Main Points

Density Buoyancy Specific gravity Archimedes Principle Surface Equivalent air volume Lifting problems

Density

Definition

Mass per Unit Volume

.08 lbs. per cu. ft.

Hydrostatic Density

Salt Water

64 lbs. per cu. ft. 62.4 lbs. per cu. ft.

Fresh Water

Buoyancy

Force that allows an object to float.

Specific Gravity

Density of a substance vs. density of pure water.

Archimedes Principle

An object partially or wholly immersed in a fluid is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object. Buoyancy of an object =

Weight of the water displaced by the object - Weight of the object

When placed in seawater, what is the state of buoyancy for each of these objects? Where will they end up?

Positive _______________________________________________

32 lbs 1 cu ft

96 lbs 1 cu. ft

Neutral ________________________________________________Negative_

States of Buoyancy

Positive buoyancy

Specific Gravity of the object is less than that of the fluid

Neutral

Specific gravity of the object is equal to the specific gravity of the fluid

Negative

Specific gravity of the object is greater than that of the fluid

Example 1

What is the buoyancy of an anchor with a dry weight of 100 lbs., and a volume of .22 cu. ft., when it is dropped in the ocean?

Answer to Example 1

Displaced wt.= .22 cu. ft. x 64 lbs. per cu. ft. -Dry wt.

14.08 lbs.

100 lbs. lbs

Buoyancy

- 86

Example 2

How many 50 lb. lift bags will it take to lift an object with a volume of 3.1 cu. ft. and a dry weight of 289 lbs.? Each lift bag weighs 2 lbs. and the object is in fresh water.

Answer to Example 2

Displaced weight = 3.1 cu. ft. x 62.4 lbs./ cu. ft. -Dry weight

193.4 lbs.

289 lbs.

Buoyancy

- 95.6 lbs. Lift capacity = 50 lbs - 2 lbs = 48 lbs of lift / bag. Use how many bags? 2 bags.

How much air must you bring down from the surface if the object in example 2 is located at a depth of 120 ffw?

Buoyancy of the object -95.6 lbs How much lifting force must be generated to lift the object to the surface?

95.6 lbs

How much freshwater must be displaced to generate the required lifting force? How is this calculated?

Force required/density of fresh water

62.4 lbs. per cu. ft.

1.53 cu. Ft. of water must be displaced

How much air must we bring down from the surface to displace 1.53 ft3 of fresh water at a depth of 120 ffw.? Calculate Pata at a depth of 120 ffw.?

{Depth + 34}/34 = atm {120+34}/ 34 = 4.5 atm

1.53 x 4.5 = 6.93 cu. ft. at the surface

Lifting problem

You have been enlisted to salvage an outboard motor lost at sea. You locate the outboard, which displaces 2 ft3 of water and weighs 900 lbs in air, at a depth of 66 ft. How much air will you need to add to a lift bag to bring the outboard to the surface? How much air will be in the lift bag once at the surface?

Volume =

2 ft3

Weight of the water displaced = 2 ft3 x 64 lbs/ft3 = Dry weight = 128 lbs 900 lbs

How much lifting force is necessary? 772 lbs

How much water must be displaced 772 lbs / 64 lbs/ft3 = 12.06 ft3

Calculate How Much Air You Need to Bring Down from the surface

Calculate Pata

(66 / 33) + 1 = 4 ata Multiply P ata x volume H20 to be displaced 4 ata x 12.06 ft3 = 48.24 ft3

How much air will be in the bag at the surface?

Example 3

When properly weighted for diving in the ocean, a diver and his gear weigh 224 lbs. How must the diver adjust the amount of weight in his weight system to be properly weighted in fresh water?

Answer to Example3

The volume of the diver and his equipment will not change SW displacement = 224 lbs./64 lbs. per cu. ft. = FW displacement = 3.5 cu. ft. x 62.4 lbs./cu. ft. = Wt. system Adjustment = 3.5 cu.ft. 218.4 lbs.

Answer: Remove 5.6 lbs Shortcut Adjust up or down by 2.5% of total diver weight. This is the difference in density between ocean water and fresh water

Have we covered:

Density Buoyancy Specific gravity Archimedes Principle Surface Equivalent air volume Lifting problems

Can You

Describe Archimedes Principle? Define density, buoyancy, and specific gravity? Correctly calculate the buoyancy of an object in either fresh or salt water? Correctly solve a lifting problem? Correctly calculate Surface Air Volume Equivalents?

Last Thoughts

Understanding and applying Archimedes Principle enables you to weight yourself properly and to achieve and maintain the appropriate state of buoyancy. Combining Archimedes Principal with Boyles Law enables you to correctly calculate the volume of gas and number of lift bags you will need to bring from the surface to ensure you can lift and object off the bottom.
