Lab description and primary aims of the lab: 

The main learning objective is Archimedes’ Principle. There is an aquarium with three balls filled with different liquids (water, oil and alcohol). The user can throw the balls into the water and can take the balls out of the water using a web interface. The user through a web cam will see how much of the ball is over or below the water. Doing this he will be able to calculate the density of the ball, etc.

The primary aims of the lab are:

  • Demonstrate how scientists work
  • Explain the scientific process
  • Study the main principle of Archimedes (Density, Sinking and floating, Relative density, Archimedes’ principle, Water displacement, volume and mass)
  • Archimedes’ principle - Buoyant force
