What is displacement? • Displacement is how fluid rushes up when an object is added. • displacement occurs when an object is immersed in a liquid, fluid is then pushed up and occupies the object’s place.
The quantity of liquid an object displaces is equal to the object’s volume
According to Archimedes principle, if the weight of an object is less than the amount of the liquid it displaces, it will float. • Therefore if there is more weight than the amount of liquid it displaces, it won’t float.
The net upthrust of the fluid is equal to the weight of the object displaced by the liquid.
For a floating object: displacing floating object’s weight= volume of displaced liquid • For an immersed object: volume of the immersed object is displaced
What are some examples of displacement? when you drop a marble into the liquid, the meniscus of the liquid rises by the volume of the marble
if there is more weight than the amount of liquid it displaces object’s weight is displaced
if the weight of an object is less than the amount of the liquid it displaces DV object’s weight
In conclusion, displacement is the movement of fluid rushing up when an object is added to a body of liquid.
