- Homework Statement
- Describe how to use a newton-meter, a micrometer screw gauge, a metal cube of side 1 cm and a beaker of water to show experimentally that Archimedes' principle is correct. The density of water is known to be 1000kgm-³

- Relevant Equations
- F= pghA

I have solved the question like this:

Since Volume=Upthrust

We need to find the upthrust and the volume V. To find the volume, we will submerge the block in the water and find the difference.

To find the upthrust F, we will subtract the weight (finding the weight usinf newton-meter) from the upward force from the bottom of the block. Ergo, we will get the net upward force. Then we will compare value of Upward force F and Volume V. If the value is same, then the principle is correct.

Please tell whether this answer is right..
