1. Buoyant Forces: The buoyant force (weight of water displaced) on the wood equals the weight of the wood, if it floats, so the total weight of both configurations is the same.
|Step(s) to Follow||Expected Result|
1. Observe weight of the water in the container on the scale.
2. Place block of wood into water.
3. Observe weight on the scale.
|The weight on the scale is equal before and after the insertion of the wooden block.|
