This applet created by prof Hwang
Original project Buoyancy experiment

Here is a question for you:

Support there is a container(color:cyan) with mass m, and a heavy object with mass M (circle shape).

The first case: right side in the simulation
mass M is put inside the container, then let it float on top of the liquid, the liquid level rise by H.

The second case: left side in the simulation
What if the mass M is hanged under the container, then let it float on top of the liquid,the liquid level rise by h.

What is the relation between H and h
1) H>h
2) H=h
3) H

Why?

You can try out with the simulation. However, I would suggest you select an answer before you play with it.

Embed a running copy of this simulation

Embed a running copy link(show simulation in a popuped window)
