Homework Help: Assignment bouyancy Yr12

  1. Apr 18, 2007 #1
    This if my first post and I think this is the right place to post this, hope so anyway.

    Just wondering if you guys had any ideas for a physics experiment relationg to bouyancy. I have to do a EEI (extended experimental investigation) for physics and so far I don't have too many ideas. I can make a model of a boat or something and cut it out using some wierd machine but I would have no idea what to test.

    Anyway any ideas would be appreciated

    How do bouancy depend on depth below the surface?

    Does it change if the liquid flows (lift generated?)?

    What I am suggesting is to design an experiment to answer the proposed questions. That is the hypothesis you start out with.
