    V/t = A1v1 = A2v2
  38. Is the weight of the displaced water or the the weight of the submerged object the buoyant force when an object is completely submerged?
  39. Pressure=_____/_____
  40. When the weight is less than the buoyant force, the object will?
  41. If an inflated beach ball is placed beneath the surface of a pool of water and released it shoots upward, out of the water. use archimedes' principle to explain why...
  42. Equation for mass density
  43. Applied pressure is transmitted equally throughout a ______
  44. the buoyant force will equal ... at any depth
  45. Is a large amount of pressure always caused by a large force? Explain your answer.
  46. When the weight of a submerged object is greater than the buoyant force, the object will?
  47. An ______ ______ is a fluid that has no internal friction or viscosity and is incompressible
  48. Fluid
  49. When drinking through a straw, you reduce
    the pressure in your mouth and the atmosphere moves the liquid. Could you use a straw to drink on the moon?
  50. When the weight is equal to the buoyancy force, the submerged object will?
  51. Buoyant force acts in the _____ ______ of the force of gravity
  52. The continuity equation results from ________ of ______
  53. What is the continuity equation?
  54. How does the buoyant force that acts on a fish compare with the weight of the fish?
  55. Why does the buoyant force on submerged objects not act sideways?
  56. the upward force that acts in the opposite direction of gravity
  1. a opposite direction
  2. b area
  3. c rise to the surface and float
  4. d Liquids and gases exert pressure equally in all directions.
  5. e areaspeed in region1=area speed in region 2
  6. f 1) an object more dense than the fluid in which it is immersed sinks
    2) an object less dense than the fluid sinks

  7. g sink
  8. h density
  9. i remains at any level

  46. at they are equal
  47. au the pressure in a fluid decreases as the fluid's velocity increases

    ex.) as air flows around an airplane wing, air above moves faster than air below, producing a lift
  48. av pressure of each side is the same
  49. aw Since pure Oxygen is heavier than air, a balloon filled with Oxygen would sink because of its heavier contents plus the weight of the balloon
  50. ax depth, fluid
