Illustrates with experiments how objects displace water to stay afloat, why some objects float and others sink, and why the water"s ability to sustain weight makes swimming, diving, and other water sports possible.

[Barbara Taylor] -- Illustrates with experiments how objects displace water to stay afloat, why some objects float and others sink, and why the water's ability to sustain weight makes swimming, diving, and other water. Force of Buoyancy: When we submerge an object in a fluid, an upward force is experienced by the object. This force is applied by the fluid on the object which makes it to, rise up and is called the Force of Buoyancy.. The scale of this force is precisely equal to the amount or weight of the liquid displaced. This point is called the center of buoyancy (CB). This is known as Archimedes' principle. For a partially submerged or floating body, the weight displaced by the fluid above the liquid surface (usually air) is relatively small compared to the weight .
Buoyancy (/ ˈ b ɔɪ ə n s i, ˈ b uː j ə n s i /) or upthrust, is an upward force exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of a partially or fully immersed object. In a column of fluid, pressure increases with depth as a result of the weight of the overlying fluid. Thus the pressure at the bottom of a column of fluid is greater than at the top of the column. absorbed into falling liquid Stripping section –light key & lighter stripped by rising gas Heat exchangers may provide vapor & liquid traffic Heated bottoms generates vapor for stripping section Condenser cools & condenses overhead vapor generating liquid for rectifying section 10 Ref: GPSA Data Book, 13th ed.
