Buoyant Force II

Logo for Buoyant Force II
The motion of an object placed in a fluid is simulated. The densities of the block and fluid, and the coefficient of friction between the block and fluid, can be changed. Oscillatory motion is seen as the block comes to rest, in cases where it can float.

By showing the buoyant and gravitational force vectors, this applet opens up a lot of possibilities for inquiries. Very versatile.
