Homework Help: Creating a Buoyancy Lab

  1. Jan 19, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Create a lab that proves the buoyant force equation; on a separate sheet of paper

    That is the directions

    2. Relevant equations
    F = pvg

    3. The attempt at a solution
    We haven't done anything to do with buoyancy, this is extra credit. I'm not sure what to do.

    So I got that I would have to get the weight above water, and then get the weight when it is submerged in water and the force would equal the weight difference. How do I get the weight underwater?
