Archimedes’ Principle state that “ When an object is immersed in a fluid (a liquid or a gas) ,the buoyant force

( upthrust force) on the object is equal to the weight of fluid displaced by the object.

From Archimedes’s Principle :

Buoyant Force, Fb = Weight of fluid displace

= mg (note : F = ma)

= ρVg (note : ρ = m/V )

Thus Fb = ρ V g

Where Fb = Bouyant Force or Upthrust

ρ = Density of fluid

V = Volume of fluid displaced or the volume of the object that immersed in the fluid.

Equation for buoyant force

1. Buoyant force = Weight of fluid displaced

2. Buoyant force = ρVg

3. Buoyant force = Weight object in air – weight in water

c.

i) Length of conductor

The resistance of a conductor increases with length.

ii) Cross sectional area ( thickness) of conductor

The thicker the conductor, the lower the resistance.

iii) Temperature of conductor

Filament light bulbs are non Ohmic conductors,it resistance increases with temperature.

It is a known fact that as an filament light bulb gets hotter, it gets brighter as well.

iv) Material

For fixed length and thickness of a conductor, its resistance is affected by the type of material.

Example resistivity of tungsten is higher than aluminium.

Figure shows a boy cycles from A to B, and then from B to C.

i ) Calculate the distance travelled by the boy and the displacement of the boy.

ii ) Calculate the speed and the velocity of the boy if the boy took 10 s to cycle from A to B and then to C.

iii) then the boy travelled back to A from C, calculate the total distance and displacement travelled by the boy.

Tips to answer this question :

Distance is the

Distance depends on the path, from point A --> B --> C in the figure.

Distance (symbol d) does not have a direction, so it is a scalar . It always positive

Displacement (symbol s) is the

Distance independent of path taken , from point A to C in the ﬁgure.

Displacement has direction and is therefore a vector. It can be positive or negative

Speed is rate of

Velocity is rate of

Answer :

Distance from A to B and then to is

3 m + 4 m

= 7 m

Displacement from A to B and then to C is 5 m.

Speed from A to B and then to C

7 m / 10 s

= 0.7 m/s

Velocity from A to B and then to C is

5 m /10 s

= 0.5 m/s.

Distance from A-> B-> C -> B -> C is

3 m + 4 m + 3 m + 4 m

= 14 m

Displacement from A-> B-> C -> B -> C is

5 m - 5 m

= 0 m

( Because the boy's location is the same as his starting location, we use negative sign to indicate opposite direction )

### Archimedes Principle

Archimedes’ Principle state that “ When an object is immersed in a fluid (a liquid or a gas) ,the buoyant force

( upthrust force) on the object is equal to the weight of fluid displaced by the object.

From Archimedes’s Principle :

Buoyant Force, Fb = Weight of fluid displace

= mg (note : F = ma)

= ρVg (note : ρ = m/V )

Thus Fb = ρ V g

Where Fb = Bouyant Force or Upthrust

ρ = Density of fluid

V = Volume of fluid displaced or the volume of the object that immersed in the fluid.

Equation for buoyant force

1. Buoyant force = Weight of fluid displaced

2. Buoyant force = ρVg

3. Buoyant force = Weight object in air – weight in water

### Actual weight and apparent weight

Buoyant force makes thing seem to be lighter.

The weight of an object in air is its actual weight

The weight measured when the object is immersed in a fluid is its apparent weight.

The buoyant force is equal to the apparent loss in weight.

The object displaces a volume of water.

The bigger the volume of the object immersed, the bigger the volume of the liquid displaced.

• Volume of liquid displaced = volume of the submerged part of the object.

An object weights 2.5 N. When it is fully submerged in a liquid, its apparent weight is 2.2 N.

(a) What is the buoyant force on the object in water?

(b) What is the weight of water displaced by the object?

(c) Determine the volume of water displaced by the object.

[density of water = 1000 kgm

(d) What is the volume of the object?

The weight of an object in air is its actual weight

The weight measured when the object is immersed in a fluid is its apparent weight.

The buoyant force is equal to the apparent loss in weight.

The object displaces a volume of water.

The bigger the volume of the object immersed, the bigger the volume of the liquid displaced.

• Volume of liquid displaced = volume of the submerged part of the object.

**Work example :**An object weights 2.5 N. When it is fully submerged in a liquid, its apparent weight is 2.2 N.

### Buoyant Force

An object immersed in water is subjected to two forces:

a. the weight of the object which acts downwards, (It pushes the object down)

b. an up-thrust or buoyant force which acts upwards.(it pushes the object up)

If the force from the weight of the object is greater than the force from buoyancy, the object sinks.

Weight , W > Buoyant force, Fb ; object sink

If the buoyant force is greater than the force from the weight of the object, the object floats.

a. the weight of the object which acts downwards, (It pushes the object down)

b. an up-thrust or buoyant force which acts upwards.(it pushes the object up)

If the force from the weight of the object is greater than the force from buoyancy, the object sinks.

Weight , W > Buoyant force, Fb ; object sink

If the buoyant force is greater than the force from the weight of the object, the object floats.

### Acceleration and Deceleration (Retardation)

In the context of linear motion, the direction of the object in motion does not change; but the magnitude of the velocity may change.

When the velocity of an object changes, the object is said to be accelerating.

**Acceleration**is defined as the

**rate of change in velocity**

**.**

Acceleration is a vector quantity. SI unit for acceleration, a is ms

^{-2}, metre per second squared.__Positive acceleration__

If the velocity of an object increases from an initial velocity, u, to a higher final velocity, v.

The acceleration of an object is uniform if its velocity increases at a uniform rate.

__Negative acceleration is called deceleration.__

If the velocity of an object decreases from an initial velocity, u, to a lower final velocity, v, its acceleration is negative.

The deceleration of an object is uniform if its velocity decreases at a uniform rate.

__Zero acceleration__

An object moving at a constant velocity, that is, the magnitude and direction of its velocity remain unchanged - is not accelerating; its acceleration is zero.

Quiz :

An object accelerates at a constant rate from rest and reaches a velocity of 10 ms-1 after 5.0 s.

What is it acceleration?

Tips :

**rest**mean stationary ( zero velocity )## Wednesday, March 2, 2011

### Speed of Sound

The speed of sound, v, in a medium can be determined using the formula v = fλ , whereλ is the wavelength and f is the frequency of the sound wave.

The SI units of v, f and λ are ms

The speed of sound in solids is greater than the speed of sound in liquids which is greater than the speed of sound in gases.

The speed of sound is unaffected by pressure. If the atmospheric pressure changes, the speed of sound in air remains constant.

The SI units of v, f and λ are ms

^{-1}, Hz and metre (m) respectively.The speed of sound in solids is greater than the speed of sound in liquids which is greater than the speed of sound in gases.

The speed of sound is unaffected by pressure. If the atmospheric pressure changes, the speed of sound in air remains constant.

__The speed of sound increases with temperature.__At the peak of high-altitude mountains, the speed of sound is less than that at sea level. This is not due to the lower pressures but instead it is because of lower temperatures at the peak of the mountain.## Monday, February 28, 2011

### Distance and displacement

Figure shows a boy cycles from A to B, and then from B to C.

i ) Calculate the distance travelled by the boy and the displacement of the boy.

ii ) Calculate the speed and the velocity of the boy if the boy took 10 s to cycle from A to B and then to C.

iii) then the boy travelled back to A from C, calculate the total distance and displacement travelled by the boy.

Tips to answer this question :

Distance is the

__actual distance that was covered__

Distance depends on the path, from point A --> B --> C in the figure.

Distance (symbol d) does not have a direction, so it is a scalar . It always positive

Displacement (symbol s) is the

__shortest distance__from the starting point to the endpoint.

Distance independent of path taken , from point A to C in the ﬁgure.

Displacement has direction and is therefore a vector. It can be positive or negative

Speed is rate of

__change__of

__distance__.

__Speed is scalar__quantity

Velocity is rate of

__change__of

__displacement__. Velocity vector quantity.

Answer :

Distance from A to B and then to is

3 m + 4 m

= 7 m

Displacement from A to B and then to C is 5 m.

Speed from A to B and then to C

7 m / 10 s

= 0.7 m/s

Velocity from A to B and then to C is

5 m /10 s

= 0.5 m/s.

Distance from A-> B-> C -> B -> C is

3 m + 4 m + 3 m + 4 m

= 14 m

Displacement from A-> B-> C -> B -> C is

5 m - 5 m

= 0 m

( Because the boy's location is the same as his starting location, we use negative sign to indicate opposite direction )
