Introduction

The objective of this assignment is to understand the concepts and produce a model on the application of Archimedes’
When the battery acid has a higher concentration, it has a higher specific gravity. Furthermore, hydrometer is used to test the content of natural rubber in rubber latex.
The hydrometer sinks deeper when the liquid has a lesser density.
The hydrometer sinks lesser when the liquid has a greater density.

iv) Ship

A ship, though it is very heavy, it still floats on the surface of the sea when the weight of the sea water displaced is equal to its own weight which is equal to the buoyant force. This is because the buoyant force = the weight of the ship. Since the ship is hollow, the volume of water displaced by the ship is large. Therefore, the buoyant force on the ship is large enough to cause the ship to float. ( Fb = ρVg )

However, the ship may sink too deeply into water due to overloading or changes in water density: then the danger of being capsized might be happened. To avoid this, a Plimsoll line is marked on the hull of all ships, which acts as a guide whether the depths are safe for them to navigate.

Ship sinks deeper when the water has a lesser
