Archimedes Cylinder Set



Useful for demonstrating Archimedes law. 
The set consists of a plastic weight with a small hook and a transparent container with two nylon loops: The upper loop is for suspension from a dynamometer or a balance (like 0916.00). The weight hangs from the lower loop. The plastic weight is immersed in water, and the buoyancy of the water acts on the cylinder with a force corresponding to the weight of the displaced liquid. The buoyancy is compensated for by filling the container with water. The inner volume of the container is equal to as the volume of the plastic cylinder.
