Exploriments: Fluids - Archimedes Principle, Buoyancy and Flotation App for iPad

This Exploriments iPad app for verifying Archimedes Principle provides a very comprehensive, interactive and visual environment for exploring concepts such as volume displacement, buoyant force, apparent weight and flotation, which form the basis of the Archimedes Principle. The app allows you to choose between solids of varying densities, shapes and structure (hollow or solid) as well as customizable fluid density. The Exploriments Series of interactive simulation-based tools makes conceptual learning in science an engaging and insightful experience. Visit www.exploriments.com to know more. Activities: Volume Displacement --- Verify that a solid body displaces a volume of liquid equal to the volume of the immersed part of the body --- Try out a variety of scenarios with Cubes and Spheres...
