Caption: Buoyancy. Photo 5 of 5. The upward buoyancy force on an object immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the displaced fluid (Archimedes' principle). It follows then that depending on the density of a solid object relative to the density of a liquid (such as water), the object will either sink or float on the surface. In this photo, small rocks have sunk to the bottom of a beaker filled with water. See C001/7479 to C001/7483 for others in this series.
