Archimedes' principle states that any body completely or partially submerged in a fluid at rest experiences an upward, or buoyant, force equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces. This physical law of buoyancy was di... More »

The Archimedes Principle (called the law of buoyancy), states any vessel partially or totally submerged in a fluid has an upward force acting upon it that is equal in magnitude to the weight of the fluid displaced by the... More »

Archimedes, a Sicilian Greek, was among the greatest mathematicians of all time as well as a physicist and inventor. After attending Euclid's school to acquire as much mathematical knowledge as was possible in his time, ... More »

Every time a person takes a bath, Archimedes' principle is observed as the tub is filled to a certain level and, once the bather enters the water, it rises based on the volume of water weight that the person's body displ... More »

G-force refers to the force of gravity, equal to a value of 1 for a body at rest at sea level, but which can be increased significantly through vertical or horizontal acceleration. An example of g-force increasing throug... More »

The law of inertia states that an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. The law of inertia is sometim... More »
